Jean Mackey Obituary

NORTH LIMA - Jean Louise Mackey, 72, passed away peacefully on January 28, 2024, at Assumption Village in North Lima. She was born on June 2, 1951, in Salem, to the late Ernest K. and Helen (Starbuck) Moser.

A proud graduate of United High School Class of 1969, Jean's nurturing nature found its true calling in her work as a caregiver in home health care. Jean's selflessness shone brightly, particularly during her own illness, as she continued to ensure the well-being of everyone around her.

Jean's creativity was truly expansive. As an artist, her paintings beautifully conveyed the wonders she saw in the world, reflecting the richness of her imagination. Her musical talents, both as a singer and songwriter, left a lasting impact on those who were privileged to witness her performances. She also played the piano and guitar, bringing comfort and joy to her family and friends.

Jean was known for her exceptional homestyle cooking. Her macaroni salad was the stuff of legends, and she was known to boast about it with a twinkle in her eye. The delicious bread she baked was just one of the many ways she expressed her love and care for her family.

Jean's legacy is carried on through her beloved children, Eric (Juanita) Mackey of Colorado Springs, Scott (Rani) Mackey of Austintown, Ryan Mackey of Canfield, Brandon (Bernie) Mackey of Las Vegas, Matthew (Suzie Gong) Mackey of Okinawa, and Cody Mackey of Wilmington. Her grandchildren, Seth and Colton Graves, will miss their grandmother's warmth and wisdom. Jean also leaves behind her brothers, Ray (Donna) Moser and Larry (Sheryl) Moser; her sister, Debbie Moser, and numerous nieces and nephews, all of whom will cherish her memory and the moments they shared.

Friends and family will be received from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Friday, February 2, 2024, at Stark Memorial. A funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, February 3, 2024 at the funeral home. She will be laid to rest at Woodsdale Cemetery.
