Jean was born on March 23, 1936 in London, England, to Ernest and Charlotte Stoate. She married Charles Durham on October 3, 1953. Together they had two children, Sharron and Steven. Jean was the ‘matriarch’ of her family who was affectionately known to be “tiny but mighty.” She will be remembered for always bringing out the best in people and for her generous heart. She enjoyed crocheting, quilting and sewing. Most of all, Jean will be remembered as being an affectionate mother and “Nanny.”
