Jean L. Groves Ballston SpaJean L. Groves, 82, of Parsons, KS and Ballston Spa, NY, died Friday, February 22, 2013 in Joplin, MO. Granma Jeanne, as she was known in her later years, was born and raised in Kansas. In retirement she and her late husband, John A. Groves, spent time visiting their son, Michael, in various places he worked on the East Coast. Most recently, Jean spent time with Michael and his wife, Maria, at their Ballston Spa home, where she enjoyed gardening, baking and spending time with her New York family and friends. She was known for keeping a jug of Kool-Aid in the refrigerator and the cookie jar full. Her kind and caring nature will be missed, as will her fudge and snickerdoodles. In addition to Michael and Maria, she is survived by her son, Gene (Kathleen) Groves; daughters, Katherine Groves-Tindal and Lee Ann Groves; two grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren, all of Kansas. She will be remembered at a memorial Mass on Saturday, April 6, 2013 at 11 a.m. at the Church of Immaculate Conception in Glenville, NY.
