I only have kind and amazing memories of Jean Stiles. Way back when we would have family reunions on 28th St for Grandma McGlocklin-Evans-Wicks side of the family. I remembered the house being on the north side but Jean’s house was on the south side of 28th with a windmill! Aunt Florence lived in a cement block house way back from the street where a “barn type door” had to be opened in gain access to the inside! My mom, Betty Lou would go there to get perms in her hair. When Jean moved to Bowes Rd, we went to visit her a few times. Memories then was she was glad to see us and always had a positive outlook in life. Very sad family reunions are not what they used to be. Nothing I can say will ease the pain, but I am forever sorry for losing someone so special!
Such a sweet, wonderful, caring woman to be around. She is missed.
Condolences to Grandma Jean’s family.
A. Jean was like a second Mom to me she helped me with a lot of things we always had a good time together my oldest son Steven and Mike were born one month apart so that was great fun she taught me how to driver I guess she was the only one that was brave enough to do it! I loved her so much and she was so good to me!
My heart felt condolences to Dawn and Shellys family. I had the pleasure of knowing Grandma Jean in her later years after Brian and Shelly got married. What a wonderful spirit and kind, friendly lady she was every time I saw her. All of her wisdom, love, and kindness will continue to be reflected by her loving family.
I only matter a few times but she was a class lady all the way. My condolences out to the family.
