May 20, 2018, The Lord our God called home our loving Angel, Jean Theresa Loar. Mom, MawMaw, Nanny or Aunt Jean are the loving names she was called by her family. She filled her family’s heart with much love, always gave herself and offered forgiveness no matter what. She will now be home and at peace with her heavenly family that she missed so much.
One of her favorite times of the year was her birthday. She loved that two of her grandsons, Josh Johnson and Scott Jernigan would plan a big blow out for her special day an everyone would come from near and far to wish her many more special birthdays. She loved watching everyone have fun. Family was Jean’s whole world.

Loar, Sr.; her sisters, Emma Medine, Beatrice Gonzales, Adele Miley, Una Dugas, Lois Speeg and her twin sister, Jeanette Dugas; a brother, Antoine Edward “Eddie” Gonzales; son-in-law, David Johnson; grandson, Ethan Henry and granddaughter, Nikki Lambert.

To the family of Jean Loar: I first met the Gonzales family in 1967 just after I married Tony Miley. We made a trip to Baton Rouge to meet his LA family. I felt so blessed to be part of your family, since it was so much like my own. I feel in love with all of the Aunts and Uncle Eddie, and was so pleased to meet Tony's grandparents, 'Sony' and Jeanne. Your mom was such a special person (I'm sure I don't need to say that to you all). I loved her smile and her quiet persona.
May your wonderful family memories keep you close to her! God bless.
