Aunt Jean always had a great story to tell. I miss when Downtown Logan was hopping. We were always sure to run into family. Especially Aunt Jean, either shopping, or driving down Stratton St. We always went to Parkway to get slaw dogs, and have some laughs. I loved when she came to Nannys and would tell old stories of when she first got married. Her leaving this world is like the end of a great era. She had a heart of gold, and we will truly miss her.

Auntie Jean— You always knew where she stood, because she told you so! She didn’t mince words nor did she fail to lend an ear or say kind words when the situation warranted. She had a quick wit too! Like my mom, her sister Doris, she could put you in your place with one look. You knew you were in trouble then. What do I remember about having her in my life? Mama’s house in McConnell—lunches trying to wrangle 8 kids, 5 adults to the supper table; the soda fountain shop in downtown Logan, the WV Centennial, the Peach Bowl, politics, her and Unc’s apartment and her wonderful treasures, those metal steps, Unc recovering from surgery at our house, and the list goes on and on. My memories and her love with stay with me forever. She never failed to ask about my sons, Rob and Jason and their families, and was thrilled when she met Jason’s wife Whitney, and her great, great niece Crosby in 2018. She loved the Lord and knew her Bible. I will see you again Auntie Jean... give Mom, Dad, Mama, Papa, Matthew, and all the rest a hug for me. Love you, Carol Sue
