Nieces and Nephews: too many to name

Jean’s passion in life was in her ability to teach herself to crochet and knit, doing afghans, doilies, and washcloths. She proudly gave away almost everything she created.

She was a believer in Jesus Christ, faithful in prayer and daily devotions. She loved her family, keeping up with them daily. Her proudest moment was when her daughter, Becky completed her LPN training and became a nurse. She also loved her many dogs and leaves behind her grand dogs.

A special thank you is extended to nephew, Dennis Vickery and niece Peggy Vickery for their love, care, and concern.

A private graveside service will be held at the Dutch Valley Methodist Church Cemetery in Clinton.

Premier Sharp Funeral Home is proudly serving the Vickery family.
