JEAN EMILY AFONSO Jean Emily Afonso, 71, of Chico passed away on November 20, 2013. Jean was born to Benn and Josephine Moore on August 14, 1942 in Morgan Hill, CA. Jean lived in San Jose and worked at General Electric for 30 years and upon retirement moved to Chico. Jean was an active volunteer for many years at The Discover Shop. She was an avid quilter and many were blessed with her creations. Jean was a vivacious woman and touched many lives with her generosity. Mom worked hard to support us, raised us with love and was always there for us. She was the "cool" mom and embraced our friends and always welcomed them in our home. She accepted our step-children as her grand children and was "Grandma Jean" to many. She left us too soon and will be deeply missed by our family and her friends. She is survived by her daughter, Kay, her son, Lee, her mother, Josephine, her brothers Jack and Joel, and her sisters Joyce and Joanne. Memorial services will be held at a later date.
