    My mother was a loving and talented lady. She moved to Arkansas because that was where most of her grandchildren lived and she wanted to be near them. She loved making crafts, quilting, family history, and loving her grandchildren. She is now at peace with her maker.

    My husband Lee and I had the privilege of meeting Jean and Phil at the marriage of her son & grandson to our daughter Anna. She did not want to miss one moment of their Wedding Festivities while gracing is with stories from her life. We see where James git his varied interests in so many interests that he shares with Anna. They will proudly display one of the beautiful quilts she made for them for Christmas last year. And on the day that Jean got moved to hospice, Jeans Christmas gift of The Readers Digest Magazine came. Her memories will stay alive for her family with these thoughtful, sweet memories and more that she did for her family. Our love to Phillip, James, Anna and the entire Loken Family. RIP🙏
