She enjoyed working in the yard, spending time with family and traveling when she was able. Jean retired from Maybelline/L’Oreal. She worked on the line and in quality control for many years.
 
Jean is survived by two sons, Dean and Torrie of Ward, Arkansas and Keith and Dana of Cabot, Arkansas; one daughter, Donna Cathey of Ward, Arkansas; eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. She is loved by many and will be deeply missed.
 
Thank you to all the staff that cared for Ms. Betty at Lonoke Health and Rehab, we are forever grateful. A private ceremony will be held at a later date for family. 
 
 Family and Friends, 
When tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand, That an angel came and called my name, and took me by the hand; The angel said my place was ready, In Heaven far above, And that I'd have to leave behind all those I dearly love. But when I walked through Heaven's Gates, I felt so much at home, for God looked down, smiled at me, And told me "Welcome Home.” So when tomorrow starts without me, Don't think we're far apart, for every time you think of me, I'm right there in your heart.
