1932 - 2018 Mary Jean Neely, 85, of Beaumont, Texas, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Thursday, August 9, 2018. She was born on December 11, 1932, in Silsbee, Texas to Mary Harris Flanakin and Samuel Flanakin. Mary Jean, or "Nan" as referred to by her loved ones, was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend to everyone who knew her. Mary Jean loved spending time with family, cooking amazing meals, working in the yard, and attending sporting events of her grandchildren. Mary Jean loved the Lord Jesus Christ with all her heart and soul and she devoted her life to sharing His love with others. Mary Jean purchased and gave away many Bibles over the years to family members, friends and acquaintances and always ended every card or letter with "Always Remember Jesus is your very best friend". No one ever left Mary Jean's home hungry. She loved to cook Sunday dinner and have the family over after church. Her homemade cakes and pies were the best you will ever taste. She had an infectious smile and hearty "wave" that she gave everyone as they drove away from her home. Mary Jean will be missed more than words can say.
