Carol Jean Hartgraves

Carol Jean Hartgraves: December 30, 1927 – April 17, 2022 (age 94)

Carol Jean Hartgraves went to be with her Lord and Savior on Easter Sunday, April 17, 2022. Jean’s journey through life started in Paul’s Valley, Oklahoma on December 30, 1937, when she and her twin brother were born to Claude and Eula Johnson. She accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior when she was a teenager and her spiritual journey through life began. She married the love of her life on August 18, 1957, and they were married for almost 60 wonderful years. Jean loved her family deeply. She felt so blessed on this journey that God gave her the gift of two precious children – Allen and Stephanie. Later, the gift of a sweet daughter-in-law Gina, and two precious granddaughters; Abby and Becca. Then, the Lord gave her a wonderful son-in-law, Alvin and a step-granddaughter, Jessica. There was nothing in Jean’s journey that gave her more pleasure than serving her Lord. She had the privilege of being a Sunday School Teacher from 1957 to 2017. Jean hoped to be remembered as a woman of faith, whose journey included being an example of serving her Savior. It is Jean’s hope that she has sown spiritual things for those whose lives she touched. Funeral Service will take place at 11:00AM on Wednesday, April 20, 2022 at the Lakeview Chapel at Schrader, Aragon & Jacoby Funeral Home in Cheyenne, WY 82001.
