Mable “Jean” George, age 83, residing in South Bend, Indiana passed away at 8:00 AM on Wednesday, July 29, 2020 at Memorial Hospital, South Bend. Jean was born on February 8, 1937 in Minneapolis, Minnesota to the late Harold Unley and Mable F. Johnson Anderson. She was raised by Charles and Nevada Rosso. Jean was preceded in death by her husband, Charlin George.
Jean is survived by her son, Kevin Hayes of South Bend; grandsons, Shaun (Jessica) Hayes and Chad (Sasha Napier) Hayes both of Mishawaka; great grandchildren, Isaac Hayes, Troy Hayes, Yazmyne Shawn, Bray Shawn, Hanna Hayes and Chloie Hayes; and her sister Janice Gustafson of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Her daughter, Cynthia Hayes and son, Ronald Hayes, both preceded her in death.
Jean was the social director of entertainment. She sat up front most of the day and greeted everyone who walked in, and knew everything about everyone. She was the life of the party. Jean was always dancing, singing, and laughing. She loved Elvis, and a monthly dance party was organized because she loved to "shake it mama" as she was always saying. She had a kind heart, was stubborn as a bull, but sweet as pie. She was truly a part of her family, and she will be missed. Jean was a member of First Apostolic Church, Mishawaka. She loved all children.
Visitation will be held from 4:00 – 6:00 PM on Tuesday, August 4, 2020 at Palmer Funeral Home – River Park, 2528 Mishawaka Avenue, South Bend.
