Obituary for Jean Davis Temple
Temple, Jean Davis, age 74 of Centennial. Jean passed away on January 15, 2015 in Littleton, Colorado. She was born in Borger, Texas on October 29, 1940 to Paul R and Lois Davis and grew up in nearby Phillips, Texas. She attended school there and was a 1959 graduate of Phillips High School. She attended West Texas State University, graduating just one day before marrying Dearl Temple on May 25, 1963. Jean and Dearl lived in New Jersey, Michigan and Virginia before finally settling the family in Colorado in 1973. Jean is survived by her loving husband Dearl Temple, daughter Julie Anton and husband Gregory, son Mark Temple and wife Joselyn. She is also survived by three grandsons: Cameron Anton, Jacob Anton and Max Temple. Her sister Shirley Houston and husband Jack also survive. She was predeceased by her parents and older sister, Juanita Davis Schmidt. Jean will be remembered for her kind and loving heart, her wonderful sense of humor and her infectious laugh. Her eager curiosity enhanced her enjoyment of many trips with Dearl to destinations as varied as China and New Zealand but her favorite location was London where she spent two very happy summers exploring its charms. After Dearl’s retirement the couple spent part of every year in their condo in South Texas. Here, Jean loved watching the big barges go by just outside their door and getting to know their wonderful neighbors. A special neighbor of the canine variety, Louie, made Jean’s lap his second home and Jean adored him in return. From helping pull calves at Hay Creek, the family ranch in Monument Colorado to designing and sewing creative Halloween costumes for her grandsons, she always did an amazing job. But most importantly she will be forever missed as a bright, funny, devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend.
