Jean Burke McBride

Jean Burke McBride died peacefully with her family at her side on Wednesday Feb. 26 2014, after fighting a valiant 3 year battle with cancer. She is survived by her husband Doyle McBride, son Burk McBride, daughters Katherine McBride Holbrook, and Christine McBride Neilson. She leaves behind six grand children, and one great grand child. She was preceded in death by her mother Vivian Carter Burke and father Kenneth Dell Burke. Jean having been raised on a farm in Idaho would have enjoyed that continued solitude. However, the Father of us all had other plans for her. She resided in 29 different residences in four different states, which allowed her the opportunity to serve others as a Relief Society President 3 times, Primary President Twice, and in the Primary Presidency again in New Jersey and the Young Women's President in Blackfoot. Her life was enriched as she was able to witness those who the Lord allowed us to have a hand in finding and witnessing their conversion & having a hand as we taught & prepared others for temple sealing. Such experiences were surely mini missions on the Lord's own time. Jean's final days were spent in the most serene and caring atmosphere of The Intermountain Logan Regional Hospital and under the loving & thoughtful care of the Access Hospice Care. Jean literally provided us with some of the most extraordinary & sweet experiences there. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. Special thanks to Dr. Ben-Jacobs. Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. in Preston Idaho, in the Preston North Stake Center, 310 N. State St. The viewing will be held prior to services, beginning at 9:30 a.m. in same building. Interment will be held at the Preston City Cemetery.
