Jean E. Taylor, 93, of Rehoboth and formerly of Bradenton, FL,  passed away on Friday, October 9, 2020. She was the wife of the late George E. Taylor.  Born in Providence, she was a daughter of the late Frank and Mary (Brassill) Miller.

She was a graduate of the Truesdale Hospital Nursing School.   Jean worked as an R.N. at Truesdale Hospital emergency room for many years and later worked as a real estate agent for Century 21 Samra Sullivan of Riverside, following her nursing career. Jean and her husband George, were the former owners of Francis Farm in Rehoboth for many years.

Jean enjoyed reading books, playing cribbage, winning against Papa at card games, and taking her children or grandchildren on a “happening”. Jean’s tenacity and strength did earn her the nickname ‘General Jean’; however she would ultimately correct you and tell you it’s ‘Angel Jean’. Now, reunited with her husband & son, she will forever be our Angel Jean.
