We Love and Miss You Mom Last

Jean Last

My dear mother-in-law, Jean Last, passed away yesterday morning.  She was 90 years old. She had suffered from Alzheimer's Dementia for many years.

Before Alzheimer's Dementia took hold, my mother-in-law was a very well-read, sharp-minded and knowledgeable woman. She was a gospel scholar and taught early-morning seminary for a total of 30 years. Seminary is a gospel class taught to high school students. The course of study centers on the scriptures. She also taught the adult Sunday School class, called Gospel Doctrine, at church for many years as well.

My mother-in-law was also very politically active. She even ran for congress twice!

Jean was a brilliant woman. She was also kind and compassionate, and was a wonderful mother and mother-in-law.

She is now free from her frail body. What a joyful reunion she must be having now with her husband, Charles, and other family members.

We love and miss you Mom Last! But, we know that because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, death is not the end. We can all be together again someday.

I'm so grateful that families can be together forever.

Thanks for stopping by!

Jana

  1. I'm so sorry for your loss. Scott's mom just passed from the same illness earlier this month. It is hard to lose parents and in laws. I'm so grateful for the atonement of Jesus Christ. Families are eternal!
