Barbara Jean Stone passed away on October 30th, 2020 at the age of 86. She is survived by her two sisters and brother, LaVerne McCluskey, Wanda Parker, and Harold Smith; as well as her children, Robin Stone and his wife Linda, Lewis Stone and his wife Peggy, and Katy Stone Miller and her husband Tom. In addition are Jean’s five grandchildren – Heather, Brian, Sarah, Jennifer, and Jake – and her three great- grandchildren – Samuele, Ryan, and Anna Claire. Barbara is preceded in death by her husband, Dr. James L. Stone; parents, Jake and Velma Smith; and her sister, Marilyn Capps.

Jean is best remembered for being a warm and welcoming host, with all her children and grandchildren gathering every summer and winter at her home on the Ouachita River. She loved decorations and Christmas especially; as well as decorating her own tree, she also decorated her church’s tree for many years. When she wasn’t entertaining her favorite guests, Jean loved reading and gardening. She was also a member of the Jonesville First Baptist Church for more than 25 years and frequently taught Sunday

Jean graduated valedictorian of the Class of 1952 at Jena High School. She went on to Mississippi College in Clinton, MS, to earn her Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. She worked as a teacher at Jonesville Junior High School until retiring in 1996 but continued to teach Sunday school long after her retirement.

Memories of our time together will last a lifetime. From summer days spent laughing and talking along the banks of the river, to Christmas Eves alight with twinkling colors, nothing could be more precious. The love and care Jean put into her every day with us is something that cannot be replaced but will never be forgotten.

Whether she was our teacher, mother, grandmother, or gracious host…

We love you, Jean.

Pallbearers will be Jake Miller, Austin Shotwell, Stacy Parker, Bobby Parker, Eric Steitz, and Howard Hardie.

Funeral services for our beloved Jean will be held on Monday, November 2nd, 2020 at Jonesville First Baptist Church at 2pm with Brother Todd Whittington. The family would like to receive friends prior to the service from 1pm until service time at 2pm. Interment will follow to Woodlawn Memorial Park in Jena, LA.
