Jean enjoyed her long walks through Capital Reef Mountains and her long walks through her loving neighborhood in Mapleton, stopping along the way to visit with everyone and her trips for coffee with George. She loved to do any and all crafts, from painting to embroidery and of course reading a good book. Above all she loved spending time with her family and friends. She will be missed by so many. But she left us all with some loving memories. Here a just a few: Jimmie Cooke: All the long walks we used to take, how funny she could be and going to her friend’s house to pick peas. When Poppy was dying she asked him if he wanted her to dance around naked and I swear he smiled. Kendra Latham: The walks through Capital Reef and Munday exploring abandoned houses looking for treasures and doing all kinds of crafts with her and my mom. Took us forever to get anything done for all the laughing! Patricia Nelson: One December when she was staying with us we went to Enterprise to visit Michelle. Taylor went with us and wanted to take his motorcycle so we had to drive Shane’s truck. We had a good visit and loaded up and headed home, expecting a warm and cozy ride. The heater in the truck had other plans. We tried everything we could think of to get it to work, only to get cold air. We all three huddled together in the front seat and shivered all the way home! The next day the heater worked fine and has since. Every time I talked to grandma we would laugh about that cold ride home. Billy Elliott, K’lea McDonald & Kris Latham: Loved her trips to Texas visiting with them and her Great-great-grandkids. Listening to her stories and jokes! Never a dull moment with Mimaw around!!
