Obituary for Jean Evelyn Crist

Jean Evelyn (Wood) Crist, Age 93, from Stanwood Iowa and living at Cedar Manor Nursing home in Tipton passed away Tuesday February 26th, 2019 at Mercy Hospital in Iowa City surrounded by family. Visitation is from 9:30 – 11:00 am followed by the funeral service on Tuesday, March 5th at the Stanwood Union Church. Burial will immediately follow at the Stanwood Cemetery.

Jean was born March 20th, 1925 in a Western Iowa farm house in Macedonia and married Clifford Crist on December 12, 1948 at the First Christian Church in Council Bluffs Iowa; Cliff passed on August 31st, 2011. While Clifford farmed and sold insurance, Jean kept the farmhouse running smoothly. She made meals for the farmhands and her specialty – seasonal fruit pies. When it came time to raise little piggy’s, Jean was right there to make sure each one was vaccinated and in good health.

Jean wrote and played songs on the organ. She also was a member of Quadratones who sang at local events and churches. She also enjoyed singing with the Sweet Adalines in Cedar Rapids. She did various types of artwork, was a member of the Stanwood Women’s club, bowled in a women’s league and operated Jean’s Photo Boutique where she took professional photos. Cliff and Jean enjoyed going to school sporting events, being involved in community activities, and traveling.

All children and animals loved Jean. She had a smile and a gentle way with all creatures and people she met. She loved to laugh and was always welcoming. She cared for all and could not stand to see any of god’s creatures suffer.

Jean was preceded in death by her parents Jolley and Evelyn (Mauer) Wood and Brother Keith (Loretta) Wood; Sisters: Shirley Wood and Joan (Rodger) Brisso and her husband Clifford of 63 years. Four died as babies: Brothers: Kenneth and twins Leslie and Wesley; Grandson: Alexander

Jean is survived by her Sons: Randy (Catherine) and Grayland (Kathy); Grandchildren: David (Allison), Sarah-Elizabeth, Josh (Kristi), Stacy (Ty), Kayla, Mike, Coby (Christina), Kylie, Lexi and Davonte and 14 Great-grandchildren; and her brothers: Charles (Donna) Wood, Richard (Colleen) Wood and Dean (Katie) Wood;

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Tipton Senior Center or Friends of the Animals in Tipton.
