Jean was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and a beloved and dear friend to many. She married the love of her life, Carlton “Kit” on December 11, 1949, and from that day forward they raised a beautiful family of eight children and were blessed with many grandchildren and great grandchildren to follow. Jean was a wonderful cook and cherished times spent with her family, especially during the holidays.
A devout Catholic, whose faith was unwavering, Jean exemplified Christian values and she instilled those same values in her children. She was lifelong parishioner of St. Bernard Catholic Church and was actively involved in her church parish, as a member of the Catholic Daughters, Altar Society, Parish Council, Diocesan Council of Catholic Women, and served as a Lector, Eucharistic Minister, and a Religion teacher for Catechism. Jean and Kit were also instrumental in helping to organize the opening of St. Bernard Chapel of Perpetual Adoration, which was completed in 1981. They remained faithful adorers there for many years.
In 1978 Jean joined the Secular Order of Discalced Carmelites Community of Mary Mother of Grace in Lafayette, located at the Discalced Carmelite Monastery. She was clothed with Scapular and formally professed Final Promise on July 16, 1978, on the Solemnity of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, taking the devotional name of the Sacred Heart. After seven years, she made her profession of religious vows on May 18, 1986. A beloved member, Jean was always delighted to introduce new members to the love she had for Carmel and her Carmelite community.
