JEAN M. ABRAHAM, formerly of Brookline, known by most as Aunt Jean, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Friday, April 3, 2020. Sister of the late Mary (Vern) Heuer, Diana Mae (Joseph) Coury and Evelyn (Walter) Coury. She is survived by her many nieces and nephews, great-nieces and nephews, and great-great-nieces and nephews, who loved her and will miss her very much.
Aunt Jean was a devout Catholic with incredibly strong faith, who prayed for everybody and whose prayers were often answered. She would often travel to holy sites and participate in events such as the March for Life when she was still able. She never let anything stand in the way of attending Mass on Sunday.
Aunt Jean loved her family - especially the kids - and meeting new people. Everybody who knew her loved her because of her warmth, kindness and genuine interest in the lives of others. She was highly intelligent, independent and content with her life - never showy or flashy. Aunt Jean took pleasure in the simple routines that so many of us will remember fondly: taking the bus downtown to get her hair done and having lunch at the Tik-Tok restaurant, watching the Ten Commandments during the Easter season, and Sunday dinners with the whole family, where she would be seated in her spot, waiting to pray and promptly expecting a hot cup of coffee right after dinner. She loved watching old movies, and was a huge fan of the Oscars, which was an annual tradition that always coincided with her birthday.
Aunt Jean lived a long and fulfilling life, and we take comfort that she is at peace and reunited with her beloved sisters and brothers-in-law in Heaven.
