Jean Guy Bradshaw passed away at Olympic Medical Center on April 5 from complications of hip surgery.
At 97, she was the last of six daughters of the Walter Govan pioneer family of Sequim. Her mother was Millie Pettett Govan, first daughter of James and Mary Pettett, notable pioneer farmers of Dungeness.
She was born in Sequim on December 2, 1907.
She married Basil Bradshaw in 1927. He passed away in 1955.
Jean used her Scottish toughness to secure a nursing career in both Port Angeles and Seattle.
She was still living independently in a Sequim assisted living facility at the age of 97.
She would reminisce on stories of her youth in Sequim and Dungeness, recalling amazing detailed experiences of life in Pioneer Sequim Valley.
She loved her Mustang cars, Seattle, thrift stores, Dave Brown, breakfast, warm beer and dining out.
Jean is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Ronald and Patricia Gort Bradshaw; grandchildren Dan, Tyler, Jon and Jillian Bradshaw; and great-grandchildren Broc, Chelsie and Brady Bradshaw.
At her request, there will be no service. Interment at Mount Angeles Memorial Park.
