It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jean Elizabeth McClendon Bennett, a beloved mother, sister, daughter, grandmother, and friend, on April 12, 2023, with her daughter by her side. Jean was born on March 12, 1951, and lived a life filled with love, kindness, and compassion.
Jean was a lover of the outdoors and found great joy in taking her children camping every year. She cherished the sound of the wind blowing through the pine trees, and the mountains were her happy place. Her love for nature was contagious, and she instilled a deep appreciation for it in her children and grandchildren.
Jean was also a devout member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and her faith was an integral part of her life. She lived her life according to the teachings of the gospel and was a shining example of love, kindness, and selflessness.
Jean had a heart of gold, and she would give everything she had to help someone in need. Her kindness knew no bounds, and she donated to charitable causes even when she herself had very little. She was a beacon of light in a world that often feels dark, and her infectious laughter and love brought joy to all who knew her.
Jean's greatest joy in life was her children and grandchildren. She spent her life devoted to them and was a caring and thoughtful mother and grandmother. Her love for them was unconditional, and she was always there to support them through life's ups and downs.
Jean will be terribly missed by her family, friends, and all who knew her. Heaven has gained one of the best kinds of angels, and her legacy of love and kindness will live on through those whose lives she touched. Rest in peace, dear Jean.
