She never stopped offering beauty and fashion advice to her family and friends.
Jean was a devoted mother to her daughters; Olikia Hill and Sylvia Burl. She was a loving daughter, sister, and a trusted friend.
Jean loved the Lord and she gave her life to Him. Anyone going though a rough time, knew she was always the voice of reason and optimism.

She understood God’s greatness and she passed it on to all of us by reminding us with these five magic words, “AND THIS TOO SHALL PASS.”
