Jean McCall was born on December 29, 1923 in Bellingham, Washington, and passed away in Kent, Washington on March 8, 2019 at the age of 95.
Jean was a consummate artist. She enjoyed painting in both oils and watercolors, winning prizes and selling many pieces over the years. She was also talented in many other areas. She kept a beautiful garden, growing both flowers and vegetables. She was an amazing cook and baker. Everyone will miss her pink frosted shortbread cookies. She also sewed, knitted, and crocheted. Her favorite pastime, however, and the area where she truly excelled, was as a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, and friend.
Jean is survived by her daughter Linda Houser (Merle), granddaughters Jennifer Shaw (M. Joel), Melissa Hudson (Josh), and five great grandchildren. She joins her husband L. E. Buzz McCall, who passed away in 1988.
She was truly one in a million and will be sorely missed.
