Obituaries » Jeannette “Jean” Payne

Jeannette “Jean” Woolf Heflin Payne, of Marshall, died peacefully in her sleep at her home on October 12, 2021, at the age of almost 98.

She was born November 10, 1923, in Gainesville, and was married for almost 72 years to the love of her life, Hunter F. Payne, who predeceased her.

Mrs. Payne is survived by two daughters, Paula Constantini (Stanley) and Patsy Stonestreet (Jim); her grandchildren, Michael Pearson (Sierra), Shelly Clegg (Jeff), Suzi Borg (Darren), Paul Pearson, Joy White (Dave), Jeffrey Pearson (Lisa) and John Stonestreet (Sarah); 19 great-grandchildren, and five great-great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Payne worked for a number of years for the Marshall Water Company, taught elementary school and organized Vacation Bible Schools throughout the area. She was active in a number of churches as a leader and a teacher. She was known for her wedding cakes and delicious food when she owned Sunshine Catering. Among her customers were politicians, doctors, ambassadors and TV personality Willard Scott. She also attended clown school and played the role of “Sunny,” the clown at many community activities.

Mrs. Payne’s life was full and giving and as long as she was able, her mantra was to do for others.

Visitation will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday, October 16, at Moser Funeral Home in Warrenton. A graveside service will take place at 5 p.m. Sunday, October 17, at Leeds Cemetery near Hume.

Memorial contributions may be made to Rectortown Methodist Church, P.O. Box 301, Rectortown, Va. 20140 or a favorite charity.

The family wishes to thank those who cared for her during the last few months of her life.
