Jean Lester Marvin passed away on November 19, 2020 at Asbury Place, Maryville, TN, from complications of Covid-19 and Alzheimer’s disease.
Jean was born on May 11, 1932 in Winslow, AZ. She spent her youth in the Tucson area, where she met her future husband, Robert. They were married after Jean completed her nurses’ training at St. Mary’s Hospital.
Jean loved gardening; taking special care of her flowers and fruit trees in her yard that overlooked the beautiful Santa Barbara Channel on one side and the majestic, Santa Ynez mountains on the other.
Jean returned to nursing in 1975, working at The Samarkand, Santa Barbara Rehab Center, and Visiting Nurses. Jean was proud of her nursing career and won many awards for exceptional patient care, including Santa Barbara Rehab’s “Nurse of the Year”.
Jean enjoyed History and Genealogy and cherished her friendships and family. She was diligent at keeping in contact with friends and relatives, and marking occasions with her creative, homemade cards.
She will be dearly missed by all those who had the pleasure of knowing her.
