BERLIN- Jean Teresa McGlynn, 89, loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt, passed on to the Lord on February 20, 2020 at the Woodridge Nursing Home in Berlin.

Jean worked at Sprague Electric until her retirement.  After her retirement, Jean’s favorite activities included going to garage sales and having coffee with her friends. Her smile and spunk were appreciated by all that knew her. She was immensely proud of her children and grandchildren, and loved spending time with both family in Vermont and Virginia.  Before moving to Woodbridge in 2018 she made her home at the in-law apartment of her son‘s home so she was close to family.
