    Jean was one of the best friends I ever had. We did everything and went everywhere together until John, her. Husband and she went to live with her son. It did not matter where I had to go I would just call or stop by house and asked her if she wanted to go and she would say, “Yes, just let me Change clothes” and away we would go. When my husband was elected to the highest office in Fl with OES the sweet lady, Grace Spivey, who was also elected told Eddie you have a choice of naming one Grand Officer and he named Jean. She and John traveled all over Fl and other states representing Fl Order of the Eastern Star? She and John joined with us at Molino, Northwest Fl and Jay serving in Order of the Eastern Star. Eddie named her, and when Grace gave him the privilege to name one he chose Jean Davis. I had already been named years before by Anita Atkins from Jay.. Rest in peace my dearest friend.
