Jean Redding Obituary
JEAN REDDING Having retired as an executive secretary after more than 30 years with Northrop Corporation in Hawthorne, California, Jean and her husband, Bill Redding, moved to Paradise, California in 1992. They spent the better part of six years traveling in their motor home all over the United States. She was an avid bridge player and a tough competitor. Her other indulgence was gambling. Jean never saw a slot machine she did not like. Jean moved to Chico when she lost her husband to cancer in 1998. She was born on May 1, 1927, in Saginaw, Michigan, to Alma and Forrest Ames. Ms. Redding died at Enloe Hospital on August 18, 2016, at age 89. She was preceded in death by her eldest son, Don McConnell, and her husband Bill Redding. Jean is survived by her sister, Donna Ames of Chico, her children Pam Ellingson, Gary McConnell, both of Chico, and Kevin Redding of Knoxville, Tennessee. She had five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. A graveside service will be held at 1pm, Sat, Aug 27 at Glen Oaks Memorial Park, where Jean will be reunited with her beloved husband.
