Jean and I had so many fun times and many laughs together at UNC-G and for many years after. Jean taught me how to make taco salad! She was a wonderful friend to my mother, Margaret, and they also shared many good times together. Jean, you will be missed.

I am heartbroken at the passing of my dear cousin. Jean was dearly loved by my mother, and I'm sure they have been having a grand time catching up since Jean's arrival in heaven!
Much love to all my Cobb cousins!
