Jean Lapp passed away last Monday morning, November 14, at her home in Aurora. We had a memorial service here Thursday morning, and burial was at Buna, Texas.
Jean was born October 11, 1926, at Eufaula, Oklahoma. Her father was killed in a car wreck when she was only 12, and her mother had to go to work to support the family. So Jean helped raise her four younger siblings (she also had two older sisters).
In later life Jean worked 35 years as a cook for a restaurant in Texarkana, Texas. She always had a garden and often brought sacks of vegetables to church to share with the rest of us. She also loved fishing, especially for catfish.
Besides her husband Wayne, Jean leaves a daughter, Betty Larrow, three grandchildren, two great-grandsons, two great-granddaughters, and numerous other relatives. May God comfort them all.
