Jeanine "Jean" (Pence) Gillett - Mann born November 24, 1935 in Bellefontaine, Ohio to Olen Sr. and Fern (Cross) Pence passed away August 3, 2022.

She is survived by her three daughters: Debra Wilt (Fred Robertson) of Pandora, Ohio; Tammy (Mike) Dryfuse of Tiffin, Ohio; Kimberly (Kim) Ball of Attica, Ohio; two sons: Rollie Jr. (Leann) Mann of Leetonia, Ohio; Randy (Darcy) Mann of Holland, Ohio; three sisters: Cintra Eshenbrenner, Barbara (Jack) Gatton; Sharon (Ralph) Mitchell; two brothers: Richard (Jackie) Pence; Olen Pence Jr.; 22 grandchildren; and 23 great-grandchildren.  Jean was preceded in death by three brothers: Paul, Ronald, and Charles Pence; a sister, Judy Bernard; son-in-law David Wilt; two grandsons: Ian and Austin; and two husbands: Ruggie Gillett and Rollie Mann.  

Jean was a member of the Attica United Methodist Church, taught Sunday school and was a brownie leader.  She retired from JCPenny Co. in Tiffin after 29 years. She enjoyed going to casinos and going to lunch once a month with Joyce, Nancy, Marilyn, and Mary (her friends from JCPenny).  Her love and joy in her life was making memories, spending time and traveling with her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, sisters, brothers and friends.  Can't forget her telephone calls every night with her sister Bobbie. What a pair.

Donations may be gifted to Attica United Methodist Church or to Stein Hospice.
