Jim Peyton will officiate. Jean loved children and made a career out of babysitting for more than 58 years. She not only kept her nieces and nephews but their children as well. Her reputation of taking such good care of children and loving them as her own, insured she always had a wait list of people wanting her to keep their little ones. She loved growing flowers and working outdoors and always had a beautiful yard. She was a huge country music fan and you could be sure she would have the music turned up in the kitchen as she would be making her famous homemade biscuits every morning. She and Ray loved to fish and after catching a mess they would clean them and fry them up right on the creekbank. Her potatoes and onions were the best. Jean was a member of Faith United Methodist Church.
