Mrs. Jean Peck

NORMAN — Memorial services for Mrs. Jean Peck, age 90, of Norman, will be 10 a.m. today in Havenbrook Funeral Home chapel, 3401 Havenbrook St. in Norman.

Jean was born Nov. 29, 1921, in McGehee, Ark., the daughter of Noel Ezra and Bertha Ellen (Lowe) Barrett. She passed away Wednesday evening, Aug. 1, 2012, at her home.

Jean gradated from Bartlesville High School in 1939. She later attended Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, earning a bachelor's degree in home economics in 1949.

Jean was united in marriage to Mr. George E. Peck on Feb. 22, 1948, in Stillwater.

She served in the United States Navy during World War II, being honorably discharged in 1945.

Jean moved to Norman from Broken Bow in 2000 to be close to her son, Brent Peck.

Jean enjoyed working crossword puzzles, keeping current on politics and loved engaging in deep conversations. She would often remark, “Old age isn't for sissies” and lived each day to the fullest. She had an incredible zest for life and believed in keeping her mind sharp with current events, places and people.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, George E. Peck on June 17, 1996; one brother, John Barrett; and one sister, Ruth McPherson.

Survivors include her son, Brent Peck of Noble; two daughters, Deborah Moelich and her husband Robert of Navarre, Fla., and Gretchen Brant and her husband Ken of Chanute, Kan.; six grandchildren, Carrie Eilders and her husband Martin, Amber Brill, Robert Moelich, Tara Tourtillott and her husband Devon, Derie Guptill and her husband Mark and Shane Hudson, and his wife Stefanie; 11 great-grandchildren; one brother, Robert Barrett and his wife Neree of Kaysville, Utah; one sister, Pat Remund of Yucaipa, Calif.; and her pet Schnauzer, Sage.
