Jean T. Noel, the daughter of the late Napoleon Wellington Walcott and Alcenia Berthenia Connell was born on January 15th, 1934, in Marquis, St. Andrew, Grenada.
Jean loved the Lord and desired to serve Him earnestly in spirit and truth. She dedicated her life to the service of others and was a long time contributor to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital; she never wished to see others in pain or suffering and was continually putting offerings to those in need. No matter what kind of day someone was having, one minute with her would always put a smile on his or her face.
Beautiful. Loving. Caring. Selfless. Tenacious. These are just a few of the words that can be used to describe Jean. Her vibrant personality touched everyone she was with. She was welcoming to everyone, always offering her love, a peppermint, and the occasional loaf of her homemade bread.
Mama Jean as she was affectionately known was preceded in death by her sister Norie and will be fondly remembered by her devoted husband Felix of 65 years, loving children, Daniel, Martin, Elma, Curland, Lionel, Doreen, Carlisle, and Patricia, her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and by her siblings Nomi, Mavis, Desmond, Baldwin and host of close family and friends.
Her legacy will be cherished and live on through the hearts and minds of family, friends, and those who knew her.
May you find peace in her passing with a verse from one of her favorite hymn Take My Hand, Precious Lord.
When my work is all done
And my race here is run
Let me see by the light
Thou hast shown
That fair city so bright
Where the Lamb is the light
Take my hand, precious Lord
Lead me on
