Jean Allen McGraw

April 9, 1935 - November 6, 2020

Jean Allen McGraw, 85, of Winston, Ga., passed away Friday, Nov. 6, 2020.

Jean was born April 9, 1935, in Stanly County, to the late Julian S. and Edna Walters Allen.

A private graveside service was held by the family Monday, Nov. 9.

Jean was preceded in death by her husband, Thad K. McGraw.

Jean retired at age 80 from Walmart, where she enjoyed conversations with the many friends she met there. She was a great listener and advisor.

Granny, as known by many, not just her family, looked forward to annual trips to Vegas with her daughters. She was an avid card player and worker of jigsaw puzzles. Granny got the most pleasure from being with her family. She especially loved being with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, of whom she was so proud and gave unconditional love.

She is survived by her two daughters and sons-in-law, Cynthia and Gary Porter, Micki and John Nicholson; grandchildren, Blair and Lee Peeples, Carrie and Doug Bailey; and her favorite loves, her four great-grandchildren, Madison and Harrison Peeples, Laina and Aubrey Bailey.

Her beautiful smile and laughter will remain in our hearts forever.
