My thoughts and prayers are with all of Mary Jeans family. I have so many great memories of her coming to see Earl and Bernice in South Wilmington. Terry thought so much of her and the whole family. I enjoyed visiting with her and Karen and all the stories they would tell. She loved her family so much. She will be missed. She was such a special classy lady. Rest In Peace Mary Jean. With love and hugs

It has been quite a year this last year. Unfortunately, Gram had to go to a nursing home for 24 hour care. We received a blessing in disguise when she had to go to the hospital. That hospital visit is what allowed us to be able to spend a few days with her after not being able to hug her or see her in person for almost a year. We were able to spend time with her, talk to her, and just be around her. Yes she lived for 91 years, but those last several days with her are the ones that I will never forget. I believe those days were a blessing from God, and I will cherish those days always.

Grandma always had a smile on her face. Mj and her were always together and she loved spending time with him as much as much as he loved spending time with her. I will always remember that about her
