She spent 10 years with the La Mesa Police Department as a member of the Retired Senior Volunteer Patrol. Jean and Art enjoyed 30 years vacationing at their condo on Maui. Her other loves were: family, friends, her beloved pets, golf, bowling, crafts and traveling.
Jean passed away peacefully at home on August 26th , surrounded by family and friends. She was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and a wonderful friend to many. Mom will be greatly missed.
Many thanks to her caregiver Linda, her nurse Jessica, her Home Healthcare Aide Andrea and Sharp Hospice. Their support was priceless.
There will be no service. Family and friends will celebrate her life privately. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that those wishing to honor Jean’s memory donate to the Rady Children’s Hospital.
