NESBITT, Doris "Jean"
September 8, 1924- April 9, 2011

Jean Nesbitt (86) passed away on April 9, 2011 at Hospice House of Spokane due to stroke complications. She was born in Tacoma on September 8, 1924 to James A. and Doris (Cooper) Frace. She moved to Spokane at 14. She was a long-time waitress at Golden Fork Restaurant in Diamond Bowl.

Jean raised six children with her husband Donald E. Nesbitt, to whom she was married for more than 53 years. She loved her family and greatly enjoyed the large family gatherings. She enjoyed playing Bingo and was a life-long "Golden" Eagle Lodge member; she also enjoyed bowling, vacations at the lake and trips to Reno.

She is preceded in death by her husband Donald E., and son Michael Shuey. She is survived by her sister, Barbara "Timmy" (Myron) Pflugrad, sons Don (Val) and David (Chris), daughters Barbara (John) Villani, Bonnie (Gary) Emch and Terri (Clare) Nelson with 14 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, 1 great-great grandchild, and numerous nephews and nieces.

Jean will be remembered for her sense of humor and loving nature. She was a sociable, gregarious woman and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. The family wishes to express thanks to the caregivers at St. Luke's Rehabilitation Center and Hospice of Spokane.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in memory of Jean to Hospice House of Spokane. Memorial services at Fairmount Memorial Park are pending for June.
