Jean (Barrow) Bone
August 20, 1927 ‒ June 06, 2015
Jean (Barrow) Bone, age 87, passed away on Saturday June 6, 2015 at the Signature Nursing Home in Galion Ohio.
Jean was born August 20, 1927 in Wolstanton, Staffordshire, England to Joseph and Betsy (Wagstaff) Barrow. She was the youngest of 9 children, her siblings having all predeceased her.
She finished her schooling in England and after the Second World War moved to the states. She was married to Stanley Henry Bone of London, England. They had 3 children together and lived in Sterling Heights, Michigan until moving to Costa Mesa, California in 1969. Sadly, Stanley passed away on November 22, 1970. Jean took the children back to England where they could be surrounded by the love and support of her family. The children continued their education in England, all eventually returning to the states.
Jean worked at William Beaumont Hospital, Troy, Michigan for 16 years before retiring.
Jean was well-loved, had a beautiful singing voice and loved being with family and friends. A lady of rare strength and courage, she will be dearly missed. She joined her beloved husband in heaven on what would have been his 89th birthday.
She provided a loving home for her family, and, in her younger years, enjoyed sewing, cooking, gardening and camping with the family.
During her lifetime she travelled through most of the United States, throughout Europe and New Zealand.
Waiting to greet her in heaven are her parents, her 8 siblings, her husband Stanley and her son Robert Stanley Bone (died December 25, 2004).
She is survived by her daughters Maureen Swanwick of Romeo, Michigan and Kathleen (Gary) Jones of Crestline, Ohio; daughter-in-law Christine (Lawton) Bone; her grandchildren Lisa (Dave) Rosenow, David Bone, Sarah (Dave) Teschler, Bryan (Miranda Lash) Jones, Rebecca Jones, Christopher Swanwick and Victoria (Jerry Hayes) Swanwick; her great grandchildren Marissa, McKenna, Emma, Christina, Noah, Alyssa and step-great grandson Mason.
There will be a private memorial celebration held at a later date.
