Jean M. (McAfee) Carpenter, 86, of South Coventry, wife of the late Samual H. Carpenter, Sr., passed away Tuesday September 5, 2023 at her residence.
Born in East Nantmeal, she was the daughter of the late Thomas and Helen (Ralston) McAfee.
Jean's loves included being on the sidelines and in the audiences of sporting events and activities for her children and grandchildren. She was an accomplished traveler, visiting 48 states with her beloved husband, though making memories at a little house on the water in Maryland was her favorite. She was a member of the Red Hat club and an avid sports fan who enjoyed watching NASCAR races, when she wasn't attending them, and carried a lifelong affinity for her favorite team, the Philadelphia Phillies.
Surviving are her children Samuel Carpenter, Jr. husband of Cathy, Jeffrey Carpenter husband of Cynthia King, Sharon Lott wife of Wesley, James Carpenter, and Dean Carpenter husband of Linda; grandchildren Samuel III, Taite, Jeffrey Jr., Tyler, Jenna, Julie, Kent, Gillian, Jessica, and Nicole; great grandchildren Peyton, Teagan, Tatum, Lillian, Morgan, and Lucas; brother William McAfee; and sister Edith Hartman.
Along with her husband and parents, Jean was predeceased by her sister Margaret Derecola and brothers Harold and Everett McAfee.
