Jean loved her family, her children and grand-children were the pride of her life. She loved and spoiled each one of them.
She never met a stranger, she loved people; she loved children and animals. Always sharing a laugh, a smile or a hug she was an inspiration to all who knew her and always there to brighten the lives of other.
She was a Christian and loved being in church, loved gospel music although she couldn’t carry a tune she sang those hymns and even with Alzheimer’s she could sing the words.
Jean touched our lives and will forever be in our hearts.
The family would like to thank their church family at Grace & Truth Baptist and at Harvest Baptist Church for all the love and support for Jean through the years.
In light of the recent restrictions due to the Coronavirus, the family will have a private graveside service at Sherwood Memorial Park. The family encourages online condolences to be made at www.lotzfuneralhomeroanoke.com.
