Millinocket - Jean Bartlett McGowan passed away March 6th 2019 at the age of 87 after a short illness.

Jean was born July 31, 1931, in Millinocket. She was the daughter of Joseph Bartlett and Grace Ragon Bartlett.

She sold Avon for many years, did a lot of work for the class of 1950, and enjoyed many crafts including knitting, crocheting, ceramics and plastic canvas. Her family received many beautiful gifts that she made.

Jean loved her family and spending time with her children, grandchildren, brothers, sisters, and extended family. She and her sister Natalie enjoyed going for rides in the car every day and never knew where they might end up.
