Jean was raised in Quitman, Arkansas after her family moved from Shawnee, Oklahoma and attended business college in Little Rock, Arkansas and worked as a receptionist at various businesses and eventually managed an orthotists office; R.T. Hickerson in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Her main love was raising 4 children to which she provided a safe and caring environment, teaching them respect and values. She had much excitement at times when her 2 sons enjoyed doing different scientific experiments like sending rockets into the air, making weather balloons to see on the television weather radar screen and having their little sister take part with them sometimes going awry. Then another daughter came later in life to whom she provided unconditional love and encouraged her in finding and using her gifts and talents to enjoy life.

I am so sorry to hear of this sweet lady's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Please accept my condolences for your loss. My grandfather was William R. Bailey from Shawnee….grandmother Alta Bowden Bailey…..I am wondering if there is a connection.
