Obituary

Betty Jean Cole Cain was born April 19,1927, San Antonio, Texas, to George and Gladys Cole. She grew up in Goliad, Texas. After high school graduation she attended Baylor University where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Administration.
Jean taught business courses at Victoria Junior College. While teaching, she agreed to a blind date with a young Marine who had just completed his active duty. When he arrived, it was love at first site. She grabbed his hands and told him “I am going to marry you!”. On June 3, 1948, Mabry and Jean Cain were married at First Baptist Church, Goliad, Texas. Their life was one of love and devotion to each other, family and God.
The couple managed Cole’s retail stores in Yorktown and Edna. They were later blessed with two daughters, Candy and Cathy. In 1958, Cole’s, Inc. consolidated in Port Lavaca, Texas. After moving, Jean and Mabry joined First Baptist Church where they became active in their church and community.
Jean lived to serve her Lord, her husband and her family. She provided a loving and happy Christian home. She spread joy and happiness to friends and employees to show how much they meant to her.
Jean’s mantra was “to serve others as Jesus has served me”. And serve she did. Jean served by holding director/committee positions, taught Sunday School and shared in local and international mission fields. After a trip to the Holy Lands, Jean and Mabry volunteered to assist with child care while families visited incarcerated loved ones. She loved to color with the children and tell them stories about the love of Jesus.
Jean served Jesus in her later years by teaching English as a second language to Burmese and other non-English speaking nationalities. She was also on the board at Mary Hardin Baylor; member of the Chamber of Commerce; member of Alpha Omega and Junior Service League.
She always stood strong in her faith, her love for family and for her Jesus. The Lord has now brought his faithful angel home.
Jean was predeceased by her loving husband, Mabry L. Cain, Jr.; her parents, George and Gladys Cole and her beloved sister, Mary Lou Cole. She is survived by her daughter’s Candy Cain Taylor (George) of Seguin; Cathy Cain Clymer-Barrera (Trino) of Victoria; grandchildren, Clint Bowers (Shari) of Round Rock, Wes Bowers (Tim) of Houston; James Clymer (Beaumont); Jamie Clymer Ruiz (Jose) of Victoria; Sarah Clymer (Victoria) and 14 great-grandchildren.

Jean Cole married my daddy’s special nephew, Mabry Cain, when I was about 3 years old. I got to be the flower girl, though my memory is that I was more of a disruption than a valuable addition to the ceremony. She was a lovely Southern Lady in the best sense of that phrase. She was a gracious, loving addition to our family and their two daughters have been lifelong friends for me and my siblings. She was honored and adored and she will be missed by all her family.

DEAR GIRLS,
AS YOU KNOW YOUR MOTHER WAS A WONDERFUL WOMAN.
I CAME TO LOVE HER THROUGH THE YEARS AS MUCH AS YOUR AUNT LOU.
SHE WAS GOOD TO EVERY ONE SHE KNEW. I ADMIRED HER SO MUCH, BECAUSE
SHE , AS WELL AS YOU DAD, TOOK SUCH GOOD CARE OF LOU.
AS YOU WELL KNOW THAT WAS NOT ALWAYS SO EASY TO DO. IN FACT IT WAS QUITE
DIFFICULT AT TIMES. LOU WAS SO FORTUNATE TO HAVE SOME WHO TRIED TO UNDERSTAND.
I KNOW YOU WILL MISS HER, BUT WE ALL KNOW WHERE SHE IS GOING.
I APPRECIATE HOW GOOD YOU GIRLS WERE TO ME, ALSO. REMEMBER I LOVED YOU WHOLE FAMILY
AND KNOW YOU TOOK WONDERFUL CARE OF YOUR MOTHER
LOVE AND SYMPATHY, SUE LYNN HATCHER

Jean and Mabry Cain loved people, from little kids to the oldest among us. Jean had a sparkle that I can remember from my earliest years in Port Lavaca. There was never a time when she wouldn't light up and say "Hi Johnny" and how are you doing? Such kindness and the ability to relate to a small boy was something I will never forget. The many hours spent with her Dad and her at Coles when I would wander over to the mall from our home were ones I'll never forget. And her daughters even put up with us small kids in a loving and friendly way. My mom, Dodie Grifffin, was taken in by Jean, who befriended her and made her feel so loved and welcome in Port Lavaca. Anyone whose life crossed with Jean saw the light she shined. We are blessed to have shared our lives with her. John Griffin, Jr.

Your Mother was a wonderful lady! She was always in a good mood and lived her faith each day. We so enjoyed reconnecting with her when she and Mom lived at Trinity Shores. She will be missed by all who knew her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Love, “The Sledge girls”, Kathleen, Beverly and Martha
