Jean Anne Kent

January 07, 1935 - November 27, 2019

Jean Anne (Foedish) Kent - January 7, 1935 to November 27, 2019 Mom left us after nearly 85 years the day before Thanksgiving - November 27th. She was born in Spokane to Melford and Evelyn Foedish in 1935. She and her sister Janice both graduated from West Valley High School and ended up spending major portions of their lives in the Valley. Mom met William Kent as a sophomore at West Valley and they were married in 1954. Dad died after 35 years of marriage leaving Mom as a widow for over 30 years. Sadly she was not able to continue their hobby of racing Thoroughbred Horses after becoming a widow. She instead filled that void by investing in her kids and grand-kids. Her enduring legacy became the family trips to Hawaii every Christmas. The generous gift of time in the islands led to a lifelong love of Hawaii and its charms for “her boys” and their families, Steve (Susan), John (Wendy) and her beloved grand-kids Joe (Sally), Craig (Lindsay), and Jamie Bravato (Robert). In her later years Mom became a “GG” to her three great granddaughters, Madelyn Bravato, Olivia Bravato, and Avery Kent. Our family is completed with our cousins, Melanie Delaney and Jeff Wallace and their families. - Please join us at Darcy’s in the U-City Mall on Thursday January 16th at 4:00 PM for pupu’s (appetizers) and drinks as we celebrate Mom’s life.
