In Loving Memory of Gloria Jean Tiemann
Jean, a beloved wife, mother, mamaw, and sister peacefully departed from this world on February 2, 2024. A beacon of love and commitment, she leaves behind a legacy of relentless faith, compassion, and servanthood.
Jean was born in Wichita, Kansas on October 13, 1946 to the late Pink and Wanda Jackson. She is survived by her husband, Chris, daughter Lisa, son Brandon, daughter-in-law Jacie, sisters Pat and Sherri, brother Terry and five grandchildren Tyson, Claire, Tatum, Audrey and Ria.
Guided by her strong Christian faith, Jean embodied grace in every aspect of her life. Her quiet strength served as an inspiration to all who knew her, a testament to the power of God's love and her unwavering belief. Jean's commitment to prayer was unmatched, as she spent countless hours interceding for the needs of others and seeking God's wisdom in every circumstance. Her faith served as a guiding light for her family and friends, inspiring them to embrace hope and compassion in their own lives. Her prayerful spirit touched the hearts of many and served as a source of comfort and encouragement to those in need.
In a bond that stood the test of time, Jean and Chris shared a remarkable journey of love, steadfast devotion, and understanding during 56-years of marriage. Jean's unremitting dedication to their union was shaped by her profound respect for biblical principles. Her steadfast devotion to Chris and their shared life, even in moments of uncertainty, demonstrated their depth of affection and a partnership that transcended the ordinary, leaving an enduring legacy of love that will forever inspire those who knew them.
Jean's greatest joy was found in her role as a mother and grandmother, marked by boundless love and selflessness. She created a nurturing environment filled with joy and cherished memories by pouring her heart and soul into the care of her children and grandchildren, instilling in them values of kindness, integrity, and faith. A true caretaker, Jean prioritized her family above all else, demonstrating the beauty of sacrificial love. Her days were filled with the harmony of music and the enrichment of literature, passions she shared generously with her children and those around her. Her love knew no bounds, and her legacy will live on through the generations she touched.
Jean leaves behind a community of former students, friends and loved ones who will forever cherish her memory. Jean’s gentle demeanor and genuine spirit made her not only easy to get along with but also profoundly easy to love. As a Montessori preschool teacher, she had an amazing knack for sparking wonder and excitement in her students, making every day an adventure of discovery. Jean wasn't just about teaching, she was always there to lend a hand and share a smile with the kids. Her colleagues admired her for her dedication and ability to make each child feel gifted and special. Jean's legacy as a preschool teacher wasn’t just about what she taught but about the joy she brought and the hearts she touched. Her dedication to education left an indelible mark on countless lives, and her gentle spirit, warm smile, and compassionate heart will be dearly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.
Jean's life was a symphony of amazing grace, and her absence will be deeply felt by those fortunate enough to have known her. In honoring her memory, let us remember the love she bestowed, the lessons she imparted, and the legacy of grace she left behind. Jean will be sorely missed, but her spirit lives on in the hearts of those who were touched by her extraordinary presence. Though we mourn her passing, we take comfort in knowing that Jean has been called home to her Heavenly Father, where she will dwell in eternal peace and joy.
A memorial and life celebration will take place February 17, 2024 at 3:00 pm MT at the Connection Church of the Nazarene, 1300 Park St, Castle Rock, CO, immediately followed by a short reception with coffee, punch and cookies.
