Jean Ann Hodges passed away peacefully on Monday, July 29th, 2019 at the age of 66 surrounded by her family and friends. Jean was born in Shawnee, Oklahoma. She moved to Colorado where she worked for many years at Coors as a Line Specialist. She was also part of the First Aid and HazMat responders teams and taught many classes as a way to share her expertise. She retired to Parkman, Wyoming where she spent the last sixteen years of her life as a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She loved her new home in Wyoming where she could sit on her deck and watch the elk come in below her house. Everyone who knew her would agree she was an exceptionally kind and strong woman, known to open her heart and home to those in need. Her three grandchildren were her pride and joy. She will be missed more than words can say.

Jean was preceded in death by her father, Clyde, and her sister, Delora. Her memory will be carried forward by her husband David Hodges; her mother Fronia Roberson; her brother Jerry Neal; her children Lucas (Nicole) Whitman, Chance (Shelby) Whitman, and Lisa (Dylan) Kraft (Hodges); her beloved grandchildren Olivia, Brinley, and Shepard; and many other relatives and friends.

There will be a Celebration of Life for Jean at Kane Funeral Home in Sheridan, Wyoming on Saturday, August 3rd, 2019 at 10am with Pastor Doug Goodwin officiating.
