On Monday, September 30th 2019, Jean L Reasoner passed away at age 93 surrounded by family and friends just prior to her passing.
Jean was born on November 11, 1925 to Foster and Gladys Latimore in Marion Ohio. She married Francis Eugene Reasoner shortly after the end of World War II. They raised two children, Cindy and Steve. She was a member of the First Baptist Church of New Smyrna Beach for almost 30 years.
While raising their children, Jean and Eugene would enjoy camping trips and travel, which lead to cruises during retirement. They would also look forward to the summer visits from their granddaughter Kristen.
Some of her most enjoyable times, later in life, were weekend retreats with her nieces Sue, Jill, Karen, and her daughter in law Carol. These retreats would involve epic card games all weekend long. Surprise visits from her nephew Irl Reasoner and visits to the old Mitchell farm with her nephew Greg Reasoner and family members brought her much joy in her later years. Truly the Reasoner extended family provided her many blessings throughout her lifetime.
Jean was preceded in death by her husband Eugene and daughter Cindy. She is survived by her son Steve Reasoner and his wife Carol, their children Kristen Reasoner, Tyler and Courtney Parsons and her brother Richard Latimore.
There will be a family graveside service at the Marion Ohio Cemetery. In lieu of flowers and if you wish you may contribute to a young missionary couple, Aaron and Rebekah Harris, currently serving Africa. Please send donations to Pioneer Bible Translators c/o Avis Harris, 5676 Billy Road, Patterson, GA 31557.
