Jean Scott Gundrum passed away peacefully on August 12, 2013 with family by her side. She was born in Trent, Texas, on September 30, 1921, to Marvin and Mollie (Adams) Scott. Most of her life was spent in Texas, growing up with two older sisters, and she attended McMurray University in Abilene, TX. After a brief wartime romance, she was married to Hobert (Hobie) Leroy Gundrum on November 14, 1942. After he returned from the war, and set up shop as a wedding photographer, she was his assistant in the business. Besides running a household, she also worked as a clerk for an electric cooperative and at Price Mercantile. In 2000, she and Hobie moved to Bozeman where they enjoyed condo living before moving into Spring Meadows in 2011.
Jean was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who blessed the world and her family with her presence for ninety-one years. She was a sweet, gentle and caring person who never had a cross word, and always thought of others in selfless ways. The love of her life was Hobie, with whom she shared seventy years of loving marriage, two children, five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. "Mom Mom", as she was affectionately known by her family, was a woman of faith and set an example of strong Christian beliefs and values to all that knew her. Her family takes comfort in the fact that she is now reunited with those who went before her, playing the organ, cooking Texas-sized meals in heaven with her sisters and parents, hooking the "big one", and hopefully keeping a spot warm for the rest of us!
She is survived by her daughter, Jeanie (Pete) Westnedge of Bozeman; son, Russ (Charlotte) Gundrum of Houston, TX; five grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren, living in California, Colorado, and Texas; and several very dear nieces and nephews living in Texas and Idaho. She was preceded in death by her two sisters, Doreen Welch and Averil Martin.
The family would like to thank the caring staff at SpringMeadows and Hospice of Southwest Montana for their loving care. Should friends desire, memorials in Jean's name can be made to the Alzheimers Association,c/o SpringMeadows, 3175 Graf St., Bozeman, MT 59715.
