Obituary for Jean L. Welch

Jean L. (nee. Lewis) Welch of Livonia, died Tuesday, September 1, 2009 in the loving care of her family. She was 86 years old.

Born February 20, 1923 in Cleveland, Ohio, she was one of three children born to parents Alfred J. and Sarah (nee. Marshall) Lewis. Raised in Detroit, Jean attended Mackenzie High.

Jean raised her family in Livonia where Jean continued to live after the death of her husband in 1951.

Second only to her family and friends, her career with Livonia Public Schools was the center of Jean's life. She served the district for over 25 years, most notably as secretary at Grant Elementary School, and cherished the friends she made there.

Of particular significance to Jean was her membership at Fourth Church of Christ, Scientist, Detroit. She was a committed lifetime member of the Mother Church.

Jean loved being a grandmother and cherished her four grandchildren, Andrew, Bryan, Mara, and Kristin.

She is survived by her loving daughters Janet Welch (Ben Hare) and Jill Welch (Scott Potter) and grandchildren Andrew Eadon Harwel, Bryan Welch Potter, Mara Elliott Harwel, and Kristin Welch Potter. Jean is also survived by a host of dear friends who join with her family in mourning her death and giving thanks for her long life among them.
