Jean Roed Smith

Mom (Gramma Jean),

What can we say to truly convey all of our thoughts and feelings that we have for you? 

You will be remembered for your kindness and generosity to all of us; nobody was a stranger to you or your discipline (“Because I said so!”) when needed. But most of all, we will remember your unconditional love and understanding. 

We were a handful and for that you deserve those angel wings for sure! You loved life, family, friends, yard sale, and laughter. Your sense of humor got us through tough times. Thank you for all of these qualities.Thank you for being a wonderful mom and Gramma Jean to us and your grandkids, and all extended “family”: too many to name. You were loved so much, Mom; we miss you so much. We’ll think of you every time we see a yard sale, Goodwill store, and any and all thrift stores. You’ll be there! Until we see you again, take care of Daddy and keep a watch over all of us. Love, all of us; your kids: Lynnette & Ralphie, Carolyn (Jon), Lee Ellyn (John), George (Alison), Teri, and Donald; your grandkids: Dawn (Josh), Sean, Eric (Sarah), and Michael (Jasmine); your great-grandkids: William and Lily Ann. 

Special thanks to all of the staff at Buena Vista Hospice; Jennifer, Sheila, Tina, Brittney, Raquel, Robin, and Victor (delivery). If we missed anyone, very sorry! Mom loved you all!. Also, thank you to Carmen, Merrie, Mary, and Gloria. We love you all, you’re wonderful. Lynnette, You’re an angel for always being there for Mom from the beginning. 

Memorial Services are pending. Arrangements are under the direction of the JOSEPH P. REARDON FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION SERVICE, 757 E. Main Street, Ventura.
