Jean Beebe Fern    31 August 1945 to 28 April 2023

Jean passed away at 145 AM 28 April in the Villages Hospital Florida. She waited for me to get to the hospital. I squeezed he hand, she squeezed back and then passed quietly and without pain. She is in good hands now and free from the trials of the last 3 months. She is loved by many. She was easy to be around, soft spoken and funny. Quite a girl. Great golfer. She loved antique cars and was co owner of our 1960 Chevy Impala, 348 cu in, three two barrel, 4 speed muscle car. She looked cool sitting in the passenger seat cruising or attending car shows. A better mate and companion I could not have wished for.

Jean grew up in Cleveland Ohio. Went to both grade school and high school in Parma Ohio along with her brother Ned and sisters Gail and Lynn. She married David Beebe one of Neds High school golf team players.  Her late husband Dave went in the Air Force, retired after 20  and passed away in 1995 while in Egypt on a contract assignment.

I met Jean through the game of Golf in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina at a Halloween party in 1998. We have been together 24/7 ever since. We married in Hawaii in December 2005. What a trip. We were married by the Base chaplain for Kaneohe Marine Corp Base on the beach at 1030 AM and had a tee time at 12Noon at the base course. We had our priorities right. At one point we had multiple residences in South Carolina, Tennessee and Florida and enjoyed golfing at each location. Jean at one course shot a 76. That day she humbled both me and our playing partner Tommy James.

Jean loved to travel and we were always on the move. Enjoying the winters in Ft Lauderdale and the summers in Northern Michigan, Nashville Tennessee or Cleveland Ohio. Her favorite foods were thin crust pizza, chicken enchiladas and my special blend of morning hazelnut coffee.

She loved visiting with her family and have them visit us. See talked , texted and was on facebook with them daily.  Jeans son Richard married Renata and had two children Aaron and Carson. Recently Carson graced Jean with a Great granddaughter Camerigh. Jean loved all of her family and friends. Remember the good things about her especially those times that she touched you with her humor, wit and genteelness.

As I revisit all that I loved about Jean one thing stands about above all else. Her passion for life. She was always full of herself and made everyone around her comfortable and at ease. She was easy to be around. Never any demands. We could talk for hours especially on our car trips. I shall miss here conversations and constant banter. I shall miss here mere presence the most. What a girl. What a woman. My soulmate forever.  Arrangements entrusted with BALDWIN BROTHERS Funeral & Cremation Society-Spanish Springs, 352-430-1449.  Sentiments are encouraged at
