She was a graduate of the Truesdale Hospital Nursing School.   Jean worked as an R.N. at Truesdale Hospital emergency room for many years and later worked as a real estate agent for Century 21 Samra Sullivan of Riverside, following her nursing career. Jean and her husband George, were the former owners of Francis Farm in Rehoboth for many years.

Jean enjoyed reading books, playing cribbage, winning against Papa at card games, and taking her children or grandchildren on a “happening”. Jean’s tenacity and strength did earn her the nickname ‘General Jean’; however she would ultimately correct you and tell you it’s ‘Angel Jean’. Now, reunited with her husband & son, she will forever be our Angel Jean.

We were so fortunate to meet and spend time on a few occasions with Mrs. Taylor. We will always remember her warm smile and open arms to make us feel like we knew each other for years. Rest peacefully Grandma Jean xo

I remember fondly of sitting in your Mom's car with Stacy on cold winter mornings waiting for the school bus to arrive. The car was so nice and warm. May God comfort you and your family.

Cassie and family- So sorry to hear of your mom's passing. She was a great lady. I always thought it was so ironic when she and your dad ended up at the Francis Farm because she and my mom worked together at nursing school and were friends. I loved her sense of humor and no nonsense personality. She was always so nice to us kids. I know this is a big loss for your family. Love-----Mary

To all of Jean's family, my sincere condolences. I loved her like a second mother. God bless you all, you are in my prayers. She was an amazing woman. It was comforting to know she was still in this world. I will miss her dearly.
