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.
