Jean Guess

MILLSAP – Jean Guess, 85, died Thursday, Aug. 29, 2013, surrounded by family in Weatherford.

Service is 2 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 3, at Couts Memorial United Methodist Church, 802 N. Elm St., Weatherford. Interment will be in Hill Cemetery. Visitation is 6:30-8 p.m. Monday at White’s Funeral Home, 130 Houston Ave., Weatherford. She is now home with her Lord.

Born Jan. 23, 1928, to John Mack and Mary Katherine Tanner Bell, Jean Bell Guess grew up and attended school in Rochester. In 1946, she married the love of her life, Curtis Guess, and together they enjoyed making their home in Millsap. Jean was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. Her greatest joy in life was spending time with her family. She always had a smile and either fresh baked cinnamon rolls or a pecan pie. Much of her time was spent watching her beloved Texas Rangers.

Jean is survived by and leaving for comfort and care a daughter, Vickie Durant and her husband, Jerry, of Weatherford; grandson, Brian Durant, of Weatherford; granddaughter, Diane Durant, of Fort Worth; great-granddaughters, Kindel Elise and Andie Elizabeth; brother, Frank Bell; brother-in-law, Frank Snow; sisters-in-law, Wanda Snow, Helen Guess and Dorothy Guess; numerous nieces and nephews; and The 42 Bunch.

Jean was preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, Curtis Andrew Guess; her parents, John Mack and Mary Katherine Bell; a brother, John Shelby Bell; and sisters, Cora David, Lena Corley, Lula Mae Capers and Margaret Fore.

The Guess family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude for the care given to Jean by Caring Hearts Home Care, Dr. Chris Rheams and the nursing staff.
