Jean E. Sawyer

Jean E. Sawyer, 96, went home to be with the Lord on April 7, 2021. She was born November 6, 1924 in Manchester, OH to Lester and Grace Dunn. She and her husband Frank were in the first graduating class of Manchester High School in 1944. She worked in the cafeteria for Manchester Schools, and was a member at Canal Fulton Christian Fellowship and Kingsway Alliance Church, where she was a former Sunday School teacher. She enjoyed golfing, cooking, baking pies, knitting and crocheting, but especially enjoyed being with children.

Jean was preceded in death by her parents; 16 siblings; and husband of 59 years, Frank Sawyer, Jr. She is survived by son, Terry (Brenda) Sawyer; daughter, Judy (Michael) Blankenship; eight grandchildren; and 22 great-grandchildren.

Special thanks is given to Chapel Hill Community for their love and support of our mother over the last four years.

Interment at Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery will take place on Monday, April 12, 2021 at 9:30 a.m.
