The Lord called Jean Livingston Crump home June 24, 2023. She passed away peacefully at Maple Springs Care Center in Brigham City, Utah. She is a great woman and we all learned much from her. She was a great example as to what life should be; family, God, friends and service. We will always be grateful for her and remember what she stood for. Even though she will be dearly missed, we know that through God’s plan, we will be able to be together again.
She was born February 11, 1929 in Los Angeles, California to Archibald and Gladys Livingston. She had 3 brothers and 1 sister. Her dad owned a bakery and did well during the depression. They had a beautiful home surrounded by many fruit trees, canaries and a fishpond.
Jean’s mom took her and her brothers and sisters to visit relatives in Utah each summer. They helped pick fruit and when the work was done they climbed apple trees, went fishing up the canyon and made homemade ice cream.
Jean attended college at BYU. She met Glenn Crump at a dance and thought he was very handsome. They were married on November 9, 1949 in the Salt Lake Temple. They lived in Pocatello for 11 years where they were blessed with 4 children, Steve, Susy, Ron and Brian.
Jean was a good mom and took good care of her children. She always cooked nice meals for the family and they always ate together. She kept the house clean and always did the wash. She taught her kids to be independent and had them do many things on their own.
Jean loved to golf, shop, and knit. She mostly loved to be with family and friends.
She was much like her mom. She loved her relatives and took her children to visit them when she could.
Jean loved and supported her husband Glenn in many ways. In 1961, she was willing to sell their new home in Pocatello, use the money to help purchase the Pontiac, Cadillac, GMC and Rambler dealership from Wayne and Dallas Sandall, and move to Tremonton. Being a car dealer’s wife always meant that she would be driving a different car all the time as Glenn would often sell their car. She never knew what she would be driving!
She was an example to us all in serving in the church. She had many church callings and served faithfully. She had a testimony of the gospel and we will always remember the quiet, reverent way she would pray.
Jean and Glenn were very social people and had lots of friends. Jean was in the Civic Club, on the ladies golf league, and was a member of a Bridge Club. They had a group of friends known as the Study Group and spent many fun times with them. She was the last survivor of the Study Group.
She was a very kind mom and grandma. She was proud of her children and grandchildren. She loved her husband, Glenn. Glenn wrote that the best thing that ever happened to him was his loving companion, his wife Jean.
Jean is survived by her children, Steven (Barbara) Crump, Susan (Gary) Harper, Ron (Diane) Crump and Brian (Cathy) Crump; Brother, Jack (Adele) Livingston; sister, Nancy Whittingham; 15 grandchildren and 35 great grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Gladys Olsen Livingston; father, Archibald Livingston; brothers, Robert Livingston and Keith Livingston and 4 grandchildren, Tiffany, Travis, Nicholas and Cory Crump.
