Jean loved life and those she shared it with. Sadly, approximately five years ago, she began to lose her freedom, warm personality and vivacious spirit bit by bit as she started her long, hard fought, battle with Alzheimer’s.

Thirty-nine years ago, God gave her husband, Steve, his true love, and this year, on their 37th Anniversary, Steve gave her back to Him.

Jean was preceded in death by her eldest son, Jerry Flanagan; her younger brother, Jay C Bains; and her parents, Clarence and Jearldeen Bains.

Survivors include her husband, Steven Wilkerson; children, Steve Flanagan and wife, Debra, of Fort Worth, and Kay Hartwell and husband, Ware, of British Columbia, Canada; grandchildren, Rachel Fleming and husband, Kyle, of Burleson, Reyna Hayes and husband, Justin, of Franklin Kentucky, and Kendra Hartwell, of British Columbia, Canada; five great-grandchildren, Slater and Sloane Fleming, and Andrew, Jayson and Rosalee Hayes; along with lifelong, cherished friends, Jean and Ken Woosley.
