Obituary

Jean Martin Whittington of Edgewater, Florida, a loving Mother and Friend was born on July 2, 1945, passed away on Friday, February 5, 2016, following a very brief battle with ovarian cancer. She departed this life as she lived it, with an enormous amount of grace and dignity. She showed beauty and her humbling nature while giving comfort to those by her side. Survived by her loving son Gary Whittington, wife Jenny, her devoted niece Raina Bauman and Partner James Blake, her sister Sandra Bauman and nephew Jared Bauman, her longtime friends Linda Chastain, Jack and Judy Weber as well as her Aunt Jenny. She will be greatly missed by her family in England, extended family in Richland VA, and her many friends across the country. Jean touched many lives , including her colleagues at Antietam Elementary and her Boat Club family, as well as the women at Title Boxing in Port Orange, Florida where she boxed weekly. As well as boxing she frequently traveled around the country and to Europe to be with family. Jean touched the lives of many and her legacy and selfless nature is a beautiful reminder of how to live our lives. She leaves behind a life and legacy to be cherished and remembered. A celebration of life memorial will be held at a later date per Jean’s request. Contributions can be made in Memory of Jean to the Halifax Hospice 4140 S. Ridgewood Avenue, Edgewater, Fl 32141, or the Edgewater Union Church 500 South Ridgewood Ave, Edgewater, Fl 32132

    Jean touched my life as our neighbor in Woodbridge, Va. With her sweet Olive by her side she quickly drew my children in. She loved my girls and became to them such a sweet and dear presence in their lives. After moving to Florida she would often take the time to visit with us while here. My heart is broken for this loss but our sweet memories of this beautiful lady and friend will endure. ❤️ You our friend.

    Jean was the first person I met at Antietam Elementary. She was the perfect "face of Antietam"--gracious, welcoming, friendly, helpful, and kind. I will miss her.
