Gean Bryant
Gean Bryant, age 86, passed Wednesday September 13, 2023 at Baptist Health Paducah Hospital.
She was born on January 15, 1937 in Lawrenceburg, TN to Rob and Edith Sisk and was part of a loving family of seven siblings, including: June, Bill, Ted, Gean, Jimmy, Charles and Robbie. Together they built a beautiful family filled with nieces, nephews and cousins.
Gean lived a full life. She was a military wife. She spent time overseas and working at the Pentagon. She was also secretary of the largest elementary school at Grant Heights Army Base in Tokyo, Japan. She eventually moved back to her beloved hometown and opened the first day care center in Lawrenceburg to include an accredited kindergarten; Tot Town. “As the twig is bent, so grows the tree.”
In her retirement, she enjoyed playing golf and learned to play Bridge. She also trained and received accreditation as a water aerobics instructor through the YMCA and enjoyed planning trips at the Lawrenceburg Senior Citizens Center. Her Sunday School Class at First Baptist Church in Lawrenceburg was deeply important to Gean, and ladies in that class were very special to her. Recently she had moved to the Lakes of Paducah in Paducah, KY where she enjoyed her final days to the fullest.
