Jean Grimshaw
Feb. 28, 1925 - April 20, 2017
Our beautiful mother, Jean Grimshaw, passed away peacefully on April 20 in Moreno Valley.
Jean, who lived in Crestline for 27 years, was the mother of seven children, grandmother of eight, great-grandmother of six, and great-great-grandmother of one.
She was always known as "Grandma Great."
Jean, who was born in Oakland, moved to the midwest as a child, but returned to California in 1956 to get away from the Wisconsin cold that chilled her bones..
The 92-year-old was an accomplished artist, creating beauty in a variety of mediums -- from painting to textiles, sculpture to mosaics.
She was the heart of the family and never stopped giving to others.
Her entire life was a labor of love.
Jean is preceded in death by her husband, Jack, her son, Paul, and grandchildren Daniels Pickel, and Lindsey Nolan Foulks.
She is survived by her children, Michel Nolan, David Grimshaw, Melissa Honkala, Bill Grimshaw, Melanie Schneider (Ned) and Kevin Grimshaw (Debi), as well as six grandchildren, six great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandson.
She will live forever in our hearts.
A private celebration of her life will take place at a later time.
