Jean Kocmound Obituary
Jean Kocmoud

Born: May 15, 1927

Died: February 19, 2018

Jean Kocmoud, 90, passed away on Monday, February 19, 2018, at Courtyard Estates in Kewanee, IL.

She was born Marian Jean Ferrill on her grandfather's birthday, May 15, 1927, in New Albany, IN to Fred and Lucile Miller Ferrill. She was a graduate of Lyons Township High School in LaGrange, IL and lived in the Kocmoud family's Brookfield, IL home for over 50 years. In 2009 she downsized, relocating to Kewanee, IL to be closer to family.

Jean let a multi-faceted life - raising 4 children, volunteering for Girl Scouts, school Band and other organizations. A feline lover, she adopted several Siamese cats which were her favorites. Later, her interests turned to astrology, horoscope studies, and numerology. Eventually her love for jewelry and Fiesta dinnerware became a business - buying, selling, and trading throughout the Midwest. She was dedicated to keeping the birds fed in her many feeders, all positioned just outside a window for her constant fascination and enjoyment.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 49 years, James Kocmoud Jr.; her youngest son, William Charles; and her sister, Joyce Buchner.

She leaves daughters, Linda (Tom) Ashby of rural Bradford, IL, Judy (Benjamin) Price of Littleton, CO; and son, James D. (Wendy) Kocmoud of Edgewater, FL; along with 7 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.

In keeping with her final wishes, there will be no funeral or memorial service.
