Jean Frances (Burton) Payne was many things to a large group of people: The mother of 4 children; grandmother of 5 children; great-grandmother of 4 children. She was the wife of the late Jay Howard Payne, Sr. (01.06.1924-06.14.1972), Jean was a mother first, always there for her family. After her husband, Jay died, she never remarried, but instead, became a Licensed Practical Nurse, working at first Washington (PA) Hospital, and then for ten years at Woodville State Hospital; she was an Avon Lady, working to win five Mrs. Albee awards. These bisque figurines are given to sales staff who sell $5,000.00 worth of products in a year. Jean had a competitive, and a compassionate spirit. Later, she sold real estate for Northwood Realty. She was a member of St. Simon & Jude Roman Catholic Church in Scott Township where she regularly attended daily Mass, helping to serve the priest in distribution of the Blessed Sacrament. She also helped take Communion to those of the parish who were shut-ins, or who could not come to Mass.
Jean was the mother of James Walter Payne of Dormont, PA; of Jay Howard Payne, Jr. of Melrose, FL; of Jon Edward Payne of Fairmont, WV; and Janet Theresa (Payne) Bakos of Coraopolis, PA.
She will be missed; after a period of over two years of failing memory, may she rest in eternal peace.
