Obituary of Jean Malone

Wayland / Springwater – Jean A. Malone, 77 years of age, passed away early Friday morning June 30, 2017 at the Conesus Lake Nursing Home in Livonia. 

Jean was born March 6, 1940 in Rochester the daughter of Harry Platt Jr. and Rebecca Ann (Price).  She grew up in Springwater and lived the majority of her life there.  Jean and William “Bill” Malone were married June 13, 1959 and together they have celebrated over 58 years of marriage.  In 2001/2002, Jean’s dream house was built and they moved to Wayland where they have resided ever since.  She loved keeping her family together and hosting family gatherings at her home that included a wonderful state of the art kitchen.   She would cook and bake for these family gatherings, the church and area senior citizens.  Her hobbies were many as she enjoyed her beautiful gardens, attending yard sales, teaching arts and crafts for over 20 years at vacation bible school and collecting different items that decorated her home (dolls, angels and chickens).  Jean loved to buy obnoxious toys that made noise for her grandchildren.  She was a member of the Springwater Historical Society, the Lowell Club in Wayland and a very avid church goer at the Springwater Church of the Nazarene.  Jean “told it like it was” whether you liked it or not.  She will be dearly missed by all her family and friends of the community.
