Obituary for Patricia "Jean" Cairns

Patricia “Jean” Cairns, of Milford, passed away peacefully on July 12th, 2021, while surrounded by her family. She was 82 years old.

Patricia Jean Cairns (Jean) was born September 5, 1938 in Brownsville, Pennsylvania. She, her parents, and brother moved to Michigan when she was a senior in high school . Her father was an English professor and always made her practice her penmanship every chance he could. She had the best handwriting and was an amazing artist. She could draw just about anything you asked for, however, her favorite things to draw were fashion figures. She had an amazing portfolio and drew what inspired her.

Jean met Thomas Cairns and they married on March 29, 1958. Jean had four children, Albert, Holly, Kim, and Brooke. She spent the majority of her time raising her children in White Lake on Jackson Boulevard before moving into Meadow Lake in 1991. After her children had grown, Jean pursued a career as an Operator at Huron Valley Hospital. She was dedicated, professional, and loved her job. Everyone knew when Jean was on the announcement speaker, she had a soft voice and always perfectly enunciated numbers and words. She retired at the age of 73.

In May of 2008 she moved in with Kim and Dennis and their family. She enjoyed Dennis’s home cooked meals and BBQ. She loved playing on her computer, decorating her Christmas tree, floating in the pool, watching movies, and drinking Diet Coke. She was always spending time with her family, laughing, and always wearing a smile on her face. She was a loving and caring person, devoted wife, mother, gram, great grandma, and friend.

Daughter of the late William and Irene Davis, Patricia is survived by her children, Albert (Carol) Cairns, Holly (Mark) Zorn, Kimberley (Dennis) Miller, and Brooke (Burt) Kirby; grandchildren, Cathy (Brian) Hile, April (Tim) Bagwell, Thomas (Stefanie) Cairns, Albert (Tara) Cairns Jr., Barbara Jean (Matt) Kolodziejczak, Sherie Mann, Denise (PJ) Boyle, Amanda (Garrett) McClain, Ashly (Brad) Allemon, Austin and JT Kirby; 15 great grandchildren; brother, Robert (Linda) Davis; very close friend Lisa Blumerich; also many extended family and dear friends.
