Jean M. (Steede) French

January 22, 1930 — April 18, 2020

Weston – A Memorial Mass will be offered at 12 Noon on Saturday, November, 27, 2021 in Saint Julia's Church, 374 Boston Post Road, Weston for Jean M. (Steede) French, of Weston, and formerly of Waltham.

Jean died during the height of the COVID pandemic on Saturday, April 18, 2020 at her daughter's home in Spofford, New Hampshire following a period of declining health. She was 90 years old.

Private funeral services and burial in Calvary Cemetery, Waltham were held at that time.

Jean was born on January 22, 1930 to the late John F. and Catherine A. (Cullen) Steede. She was raised and educated in Waltham and had been a lifelong resident before moving to Centerville in 1992 and then to Weston in 2003.

On October 25, 1952 she married Jim French at Saint Mary's Church in Waltham. Jimmy and Jean shared forty-four years together until his death on February 19,1997.

Jean was devoted to her faith and had been a parishioner of Saint Mary's Church, Saint Joseph's Church in Lincoln and Saint Julia's Church in Weston. She also cherished every moment spent with her family, especially her grandkids. She was possessed of a true Irish wit and a friendly nature that brought a smile to the face of everyone she met.

In addition to her husband, Jim, she is reunited in Heaven with her brothers, the late Kevin K., David C., and Joseph T. Steede.

She leaves her children, Pamela J. French of Waltham, Kathleen M. Robbins (Larry) of Spofford, New Hampshire, Sandra F. Ruland (Frederick) of Wayland, and Michael J. French of Casselberry, Florida; her grandchildren Kate Robbins (Annette Diorio), Kevin Robbins, James French, and Catherine and William Ruland; her brother and sister, John R.
