Obituary

Eugenia (Jean) Floyd, born September 6, 1934 to Beatrice and Chock Mulkey in Colfax, Louisiana, passed away September 7, 2019. She married O.E. Floyd, Jr September 6, 1954.

Jean was a caregiver to all she met, had a servant’s heart, and was referred to as another angel on our side.

She was active in the Brownfield community, volunteering at the hospital as a “pink lady”. Her employment included the First National Bank, the ASCS office, United Way and was owner of Floyd Trucking, Inc.

Being active in her church, becoming a Christian at an early age, she taught Sunday school, was a member of the Sweet Spirit Singers and sang in the choir.

Jean hosted many “bag lady” luncheons to celebrate the birthdays of the women at her church as well as other girlfriends.

Gardening was a top priority which allowed her to provide beauty wherever she was. A close second was playing “hand and foot” and other table games, claiming she rarely got to win. Others might disagree.
Jean was preceded in death by her parents, Beatrice and Chock Mulkey; sister, Rose Ann Schoolcraft; and brother, Charles R. Mulkey.

Survivors include her husband of 65 years, O.E. Floyd, Jr.; sisters, Barbara Lawson and husband, David of Wolfforth, TX; and Juanita Parsons of Kyle, Texas; sister-in-law, Francis Johnson of Brownfield; best friend, Karen Romine of Brownfield; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She will be greatly missed by all who knew her, yet we find comfort knowing she’s at home with her Savior.

Services are scheduled at The First Baptist Church of Brownfield at 11 a.m. Friday, September 13, 2019 with viewing one hour prior to the service. A time of fellowship and remembrance is scheduled from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm on Thursday, September 12, 2019, at Lake Ridge Chapel and Memorial Designers, in Lubbock.

  1. Jean was a special lady. I was privileged to serve as her pastor for almost 10 years and will always remember her calling me “preacher.” She was always there with an encouraging word. Lisa and I will be out of town this weekend and won’t be able to attend the service; however, each of you will be in our thoughts and prayers. O.E and family, we love you.

  2. We are in Kyle Texas where her sister Juanita lives. We never met Jean but after reading her obit we surely missed a wonderful person. Juanita certainly carries on Jeans loves and legacy for life and for that we will remember her sister Jean. All our condolences from central Texas and may the soul of Jean Rest In Peace.

  3. Several years ago I met Jean and O.E. when I became the insurance agent for Floyd Trucking Co, Inc. From the very beginning of our relationship it was obvious that they were Christian people and our relationship grew to be one of friends in Christ. Jean was such a sweet lady to deal with but even as a very strong business person her Christianity shown through at all times. She did not have to flaunt her Christianity. It came though in a natural way, the way we are taught that it should be. She and O.E. were a pleasure to deal with. I use to say that I loved making friends out of clients, but I would never try to make a friend a client. In the case of the Floyds I made some dear friends. Jean is truely with Christ today and will be doing as the Lord leads her.

    I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting Jean, but I have known Juanita, her sister, for 27 years. I know through Juanita that she was a very special Lady. I so wish I could be there with you Juanita, but the “miles” keep me from it. Dear God hold Juanita, her husband, her family and friends in your comforting arms… until we meet again.

  5. Dearest Juanita and beloved family,

    I can’t begin to imagine the loss of someone so big and so present in people’s lives. I have not met Jean but I feel I have missed a great deal by knowing her. I have heard of her generosity and the love she shared so easily. She will be missed.

  6. Oh Jean. I loved her so much. Jean and O.E. were in my choir at Trinity Church in Lubbock for many years. I loved her quick wit and her deep love of God as she sung. O.E., my prayers are with you, Sir. It has been an honor to know and love you both.

  7. I only knew Jean through her Brother Charles, sister Barbara, and sister Juanita, and through them had a special friendship for Jean and O.E.
    My condolences and prayers go out to the family! I will be there in spirit!

  8. We had the privilege of meeting Mrs. Floyd through their business, Floyd Trucking. She became a fast friend. She had a way of making us feel truly cared for and was always interested in what was going on in our life. She was such a special lady. I miss her laugh, her intelligence, and her love for God and for everyone she knew.
    Our condolences and prayers for Mr. Floyd, their family and friends.
