Jean Moody went to live in heaven on March 27, 2021, having lived a full, long life of love, adventure, laughter and service. Jean was born May 16, 1932 in Bodega, CA to Charles and Cecilia Macche.
Jean was raised in Bodega on the family ranch and remained there until she left to attend college at San Jose State University where she proudly earned her degree in elementary education. During her senior year of college, she fell in love with Charlie and they married in 1955. Jean joined Charlie in San Luis Obispo, CA when they married and the family eventually settled in Las Vegas, NV in 1962. Jean was an elementary school teacher in California and Nevada, but her most important and loved role was as an excellent wife, mother and grandmother.
Jean was known for her loving nature, sense of adventure and love for her family and friends. She loved Charlie, her family and countless friends beyond measure and created treasured memories with them. She also loved playing cards, road trips, visiting her extended family, entertaining and cooking, the family dogs and serving others. She was actively involved with her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, brothers and sister through her last days. Jean will be loved eternally and her impact on her family and friends will not be forgotten.
Jean was preceded in death by her husband of 65 years, Charlie. She is survived by her son, Bill (Barbara), daughter, Saundra (Gary), grandchildren (Greg, Robyn, Brady, Shaina and Jeff), 5 great-grandchildren, brothers (Julius and Richard) and sister (Rosalie).
