She was always ready to lend a hand or an ear. Jean loved her church and was a very active member of the congregation. Jean also loved to go shopping.
Left to cherish her memory are her beloved children, Anna M. Moore (Bobby), Samantha L. Edwards and Ronald “Ron” L. Edwards II (Brandy); her sister, Vivian H. Callaway (Chuck); her seven grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
