Just received an email from Jean's daughter that she passed quietly
yesterday. Jean was a stalwart MSTie, an incredibly funny person, a
talented artist and one of the most sensible people I've ever
encountered. She will be greatly missed.

There's not, but I could growl inarticulately at the year
deciding to start off like this.

This is very sad. Jean was only in her 60's. How did she die, Chris?

I don't know, sorry.

Thanks for putting up some pics of her AMAZING MST3K-themed art at
http://www.mst3kinfo.com/?p=14469

She will be missed!

Been offline in the Newsgroup zone since Charter decided to "stop
supporting NNTP" since Nov 13, 2012.
Sorry to read about her passing so late.

The world needs all the talented artists it can gain.
I hope her family the best in this rough time.

No words, indeed, but I'm going to give it a go anyway.

Jean, my mom, passed away very quickly and painlessly, we believe from a blood clot to either her heart or her brain, so quickly in fact she didn't have time to press her Life Alert button. I think we wish we could all go that way, and I know it's how she wanted to go.

It was unexpected to be sure, which is why my original email was so short. It's a lot to process, and even a week later I still expect that occasional phone call, funny email, or a happy hello whenever we go to her house.

All of you meant the world to her. She talked about many of you, and considered MSTies her family. Her biggest joy besides painting (which she started at 12 years old) was bringing you joy with her artwork. Many times I caught her staring into space, and I would smile because I knew she was thinking about what she would be painting next.

Her final wishes did include giving Satellite News her remaining prints (of which there are hundreds) and electronic copies for even more prints, because she wanted to continue to make all of you happy even after she was gone..

The best part is reading here and at Satellite News about how much you enjoyed her and her artwork. As her daughter I didn't get to see all the things she did in her life, and it's both inspiring and touching to know how much of a positive difference she made in people's lives. I'm thrilled to know her legacy -- her joys and her passions -- will continue for many years to come.

To me that makes her still very much alive to me, and I have you to thank for it.

God Bless,

Andra

There were several people through the years (including me) who were urging her to do something in the Thomas Kinkade genre. Given that he died early last year, I wonder if Jean ever attempted it....

Perhaps they're even now enjoying a fine beverage together, ala "Captain Stormfield's Visit to Heaven"

She did not, at least not that I know of. She did tease about starting a new series, but refused to reveal what it was. Dang it.
