Born in Butte, Montana May 25 1915 to Alice and Alfred Downs. Jean now is joined in heaven with, her daughter Jo Ann McKnight, brothers Mike & Jim Downs, & sisters Virginia Langworthy & Mary Greene, as well as her parents.

She loved the Lord and had been involved in foreign missions in Indonesia, co-pastoring churches. Played the guitar left handed and used her talent by playing and singing in church and on radio. She was also involved in Bible teaching in Sunday School and Bible school. She is absent from the body but at home with the Lord. We miss her greatly but rejoice in knowing that she is enjoying heaven and the presence of the Savior whom she so dearly loved.

    So sorry to hear of Jean’s passing. She was my first Sunday School teacher in 1978, and I will never forget her steadfast faith in our Lord which inspired me greatly during some severe trials of my youth. She lived an amazing, long life and finished well. God Bless you Brother McKnight!
