Jean Bayers passed on to her next life on Friday, March 11, 2016. She was born to Aratus and Marjorie Senter, on a farm, near Jamaica, Iowa, on August 14, 1923.
Mrs. Bayers graduated from Jamaica High School in 1941, and later married Richard Bayers in Omaha, Nebraska, on August 17, 1943. When Richard returned from the Pacific after World War II, they began farming in Jamaica, Dawson, and Bagley. They retired from farming in 1984 and moved into Jamaica. Jean was a lifelong member of St. Joseph"s Catholic Church in Jamaica and a charter member of the Paul Johnson Post Legion auxiliary. She moved to Altus, OK, in January 2009, to live with Jim and Kathy Bayers.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Richard, her brother Keith Senter and infant granddaughter Jenny Bayers.

The family wishes to thank Dr. John Root and his staff, Kay Stewart and the Tamarack Assisted Living Staff, and Jackson Co. Hospice for their untiring dedication and love to our mother.
A grave side service is planned for a later date in Iowa.
