Jean Marie Pierson Driver passed away on September 5, 2018. Jean was born on March 8, 1960 to James Harris Jr. and Ramona LeAnne Pierson. She graduated from Odessa Permian High School in Odessa, Texas in 1978.
Jean’s greatest happiness in life was caring for her family. She married the love of her life, Richard Lee Driver II, on August 16, 1980. After Richard graduated from Texas Tech University, the young couple moved to Longview in 1982, and Jean soon realized her dream of becoming a mother.
Jean was preceded in death by her husband, parents, and brother, Jimmy Pierson. Left to treasure her memory are her son and daughter-in-law, Richard and Briland Driver of San Antonio, Texas; daughter and son-in-law, Rachel and Garrett Day of Longview, Texas; and granddaughter, Gillian Driver of San Antonio, Texas. Jean also leaves behind her sister and brother-in-law, Janet and Todd Kelley of Longview, Texas; brother and sister-in-law, Jeffrey and Kim Pierson of Gulf Shores, Alabama; sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law Dana and Mark Manion of Eugene, Oregon and Jeanne Anne and Chris Mauck of Birmingham, Alabama; brother-in-law and sister-in-law Jarrell and Leesa Driver of Midland, Texas; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Jean had a beautiful smile and a passionate heart. She was a loving mother and grandmother, a devoted sister, and a cherished friend. She will miss and be missed by those she left behind, but she is now peacefully reunited with her beloved husband, Richard.
The family will receive friends in the Garden Court of Welch Funeral Home from 3:00 to 5:00 P.M. Saturday, September 8, 2018 for a personalized visitation.
