Jean P Sewell, age 95, passed away October 7, 2022 at Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital. She was surrounded by her loving family when she passed.
Jean was born on September 18, 1927 in Trenton, New Jersey. She lived in many places including New Jersey, New York City, Russo, KY, London and Somerset, KY as her parents were missionaries who brought the Gospel of Jesus Christ to many, many people.
Jean was saved at an early age, and she shared in her parent’s vision of spreading the “Good News” to everyone. She and her sisters (Barbara & Mary) often could be found singing, and showing flannel graph bible stories to children, which she continued doing when she taught Sunday School many years later.
Jean was a woman of great faith, and she loved the Lord with all her heart. She was a prayer warrior, and a great encourager. She lifted up in prayer, and sent thousands of cards over the years to those she felt needed an encouraging word, or just to know that someone cared. She taught Sunday School for many years, and also served in other positions in the church as well. She served the Lord faithfully and her heart’s desire was for everyone to accept the gift of salvation, and have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The legacy of her parents became her legacy as well, and she continued to support missionaries all of her life.
Jean was a remarkable woman who lived her faith every day. She was a devoted wife, and a dedicated mother, who loved her children, and grandchildren with all her heart. She was loving, kind, thoughtful, and very compassionate to those in need. She was a Proverbs 31 woman in every way, and all who knew her were blessed by her loving spirit and faith. Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised (Proverbs 31:30).
She was preceded in death by her parents, Paul McCain Maines & Barbara Grace Kendall Maines, and her husband William F. (Bill) Sewell, her son Kenneth E. Sewell, and her sisters Barbara Maines Cool, and Mary Maines Ellison.
Those left behind to cherish her memory are her sons, William David Sewell (Teresa), Charles (Chuck) Sewell (Fern), two grandsons, Eric Travis Sewell (Delcare), and William Kendall Sewell, two great grandchildren, Erica Sewell, and Travis Sewell, and two great, great grandchildren, Lily and Violet. She leaves behind a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, family, friends and neighbors who all loved her deeply. Her legacy of love and faith will continue long after her time on this earth.
A service celebrating the life of Jean Sewell will be held at Southern Oaks Funeral Home in Somerset, Kentucky on Tuesday, October 11, 2022. Visitation will begin at 10:00 am followed by the service at 12:00 noon, with Bro. Kevin Hampton officiating. Burial will be in Lakeside Memorial Gardens.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations made in her name to Potters Place Baptist Church, continued support of missionaries, or the Gideon Bible fund. Southern Oaks Funeral Home is entrusted with the arrangements for Jean P Sewell.
