Jean Chapman was born on March 10, 1945, to Fred and Violet Jones in Floydada, Texas. She was a proud graduate of Floydada High School, who continued her education at Jessie Lee’s Beauty School of Design. She utilized her education, priding herself on making many women feel beautiful. She later joined her husband in serving the cotton farming industry of Texas.
She married Tommy Chapman on November 20, 1965, in Plainview, Texas. She was a devoted and caring wife who worked side-by-side with Tommy both in the cotton industry and in raising their three daughters: Tammy, Toni, and Tina. Their marriage of 54 years was defined by love, togetherness and fun and was a shining example for others who knew them. Jean’s good nature and dedication to her family made her an ideal Mother and Maw-Maw.
Everyone who came into contact with Jean quickly realized they were not a stranger. She was quick to laugh and share a story. She loved fiercely and would go out of her way to help anyone in need. Jean was a fighter, showing remarkable strength when she beat breast cancer in 2017. Her favorite pastimes included weekly Bingo games with Tommy, traveling and spending time with her grandchildren.
Survivors include husband, Tommy Chapman; three daughters, Tammy Williams of Lubbock, Texas, Toni Chapman, and Tina Russell, both of Shallowater, TX; seven grandchildren, Jordy Williams and wife, Rachel, of Chicago, IL, Macie Williams of Lubbock, TX, Averi and Arynn Hutcherson of Shallowater, TX, Sarah Russell of Dallas, TX, Anna Russell of Shallowater, TX, and Jacob Russell of Austin, TX; brother, Wayland Jones, and wife, Margaret, of Floydada, TX; as well as many other family and friends.
