Jean Bray Ward, 95, passed away November 1, 2018 at her home. A graveside service at a later date will be held at Highland Memory Gardens Cemetery.
Jean graduated from North High School and Broadlawns Nursing School. She worked as a registered nurse at VA Hospital in Des Moines. She was a member of Covenant Christian Church, Order of Eastern Star and North High Alumni. She also did volunteer work for Terrace Hill, Living History Farms and at local hospitals.
Jean is survived by children: Steven Ward, Nikki Ward, Cynthia Ward and Robert Ward, Jr.; four grandchildren, Katie Robiadek, Casey Drake, Tena Dameron and Robert Eugene Ward; three great grandchildren, Leah, Tyler and Carson. She was preceded in death by her parents, Harry and Donzella Bray; brother, George Bray; sister, Ruby Greenwood and grandson, David Robiadek.
Jean enjoyed golf, playing bridge and canning strawberries. Her passion, however, was antiquing and collecting various pieces of china, tea cups, silver spoons and refinishing furniture. She had a great eye for interesting pieces. She loved traveling with her daughter, Nikki, especially lunching in Paris and exploring the British Isles.
Memorial contributions may be directed to her family.
