Jean S. Forbes, 95, of Midland, went home to be with her Lord, Tuesday morning, January 1, 2019 at Independence Village Story Point, with her daughter by her side.

She was born April 26, 1922 in St. John’s, daughter of the late Walter and Leora (Hoard) Anderson. She grew up in Bay City, and attended and graduated from Bay City Central High School. On October 25, 1943 she married Ralph J. Forbes in Bay City, he preceded her in death in 2001.

Her life has been truly blessed in many ways. She was blessed with a wonderful family, a love of the outdoors, and being up north at Mid Forest Lodge. She also enjoyed wintering in Florida, flowers and many games of Skip-BO and Pedro card games with her family. She was a proud member of the Open Door Baptist Church. She will also be remembered for her love of chocolate and sharing it with everyone she met.

She will be missed by her daughter and her spouse, Kay and Ray Warmbier; grandchildren Gary (Heather) Warmbier and Kevin (Kate) Warmbier; great-grandchildren Alexandra Warmbier, Grace Warmbier, Wesley Warmbier, William Warmbier, and Vivian Warmbier, and her sisters Virginia Trogan and Joan (Martin) Waits. In addition to her husband and parents she was preceded in death by her son Gary, two brothers and two sisters.

Jean’s family would like to thank Independence Village and all the caregivers who gave so much personal attention and love to mom the last three years. God bless each of you. We would also like to thank mom’s good friends, Mary Price and Ruth Peck for being great friends through the years.

Funeral services will take place at 12:00 noon Saturday, January 12, 2019 from the Ware-Smith-Woolever Funeral Home, 1200 West Wheeler Street, with private graveside burial rites in Lafayette Twp.
