Jean Hodges Baldwin, age 93, formerly of South Knoxville, went to be with the Lord on July 2, 2018 at Autumn Care Assisted Living of Farragut, Knoxville, Tennessee.

Jean was born in New Hope, Alabama, on April 20, 1925 to Walter and Florence Hodges. She
was a wonderful and devoted Christian wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. “Nana” was much loved and cherished by her family and friends and will be deeply missed.

After graduating from Business College in Richmond, VA, Jean began her working career as a secretary at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama. After marrying her husband, Welborne, in 1946, she began her married life as a farmer’s wife in Indiana. They moved to Knoxville in 1952 and she began her employment with TVA in 1958. She retired from TVA in 1981 as the Stenographic and Reproduction Department Manager. After her retirement, she and Welborne enjoyed traveling the country and the world, admiring the beauty of God’s creations.

Jean was a member of Concord United Methodist Church, formerly of Church Street UMC and Colonial Heights UMC. She was active in her church, working with the youth, singing in the choir and working with the church food pantry.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband, Welborne Lewis Baldwin, her brothers, Raymond and Clayton Hodges and her sister, Dorothy Mellette.

Jean is survived by her sister, Betty Jo Johnson of Huntsville, Alabama; her son and daughter-in law, Philip and Katherine Baldwin of Lawrenceville, Georgia; her daughter and son-in-law, Carolyn and Marty McDonald of Knoxville; grandchildren, Stacey McDonald, Lucas McDonald, Lindsay (Brian) Newman and Andrew (Stephanie) Baldwin; three great grandchildren, Madison and Jackson Newman and Philip James Baldwin, and several nephews and nieces.
