Mary Jean Reddy Warren
Mary Jean Reddy of Coleman Texas via Gainesville Texas who was also known as Jean Davis and more recently Jean Warren was a red-headed rebel who loved Willie and Waylon and boots and bourbon. She was a saucy icon who entertained her lady friends with pink plates and frilly things. Though she loved her jewels and her hair perfectly done, she also enjoyed a good football game directed by Patrick Mahomes, a John Wayne or Audie Murphy WW II movie and a local country & western bar where she could two-step on occasion.
In her early professional days, Jean was a history teacher who was the recipient of the Teacher of the Year award given by the Plano Independent School District. She later pursued an administration position in the district and was appointed as the first female secondary principal in the Plano school system. Her passion for history and education lead to world travel with her husband Charles Herbert Warren. She treasured her many friends and colleagues gained during her time in Plano but she moved to Austin in 2002 so that she could spend quality time with her family. She was very close with her two sons, Darin and Brad, her daughters’ in-laws Karisa and Tiffany, her three grandsons, Hunter, Connor and Kaden and her granddaughter, Everly.
During the 19 years she spent in central Texas, Jean created a new set of friends. She was active in the Newcomer’s Club where she served one term as president. Funny, loving and giving, she was the rudder on the ship of her choice. She never complained and did not care for complainers. She approached every major challenge with a Winston Churchill mentality, and it worked for her and the people she encountered. Her friends and family knew they could count on her and they did, and she produced. Following services in Austin, Jean will be buried at a private graveside service next to her husband Charles. Charles at Restland Memorial Park. Following burial there will be a celebration of life service for Jean at 2pm Friday June 4th at Ted Dickey West Funeral Home in Plano. Mama Jean, Mom, Mary Jean, and Jean will all be deeply missed. Her family and friends counted on her to bring the smile, the positive attitude, and the good spirits that followed her everywhere she was present. We will toast you, we all will miss you and we all love you.
