Jean was born the twelfth child to Jim and Gwen Gaines in the town of Snohomish, Wash., on April 5, 1937. She passed away after a brief illness on April 7, 2013, while living in Yuma, Arizona.
Throughout Jean’s life she was very active in sports such as bowling, softball, golf and tennis.
She made many life-long friends on the softball field, the bowling alleys, the golf courses and the tennis courts.
Jean is survived by her husband, Ken Brady; two daughters, Jacquie and Teri; two sons, Rick and Doug; three grandchildren, Rick, Jennifer, Craig; one great grandchild, Cameron; and numerous nephews and nieces. Jean also leaves one brother, Gary Gaines.
A memorial service will be held on May 18 from 1-3 p.m. at the clubhouse at Canterbury Square, Woodinville, Wash. Canterbury Square is the senior mobile home park, where Ken and Jean lived.
We have had opportunities to use the hospice in Yuma and in Everett and find them to be caring, well organized and professional. Please send any donations in Jean’s name to the hospice of your choice.
