Jean Thomas (73) passed away peacefully at her home in Paradise Valley, Nevada on Saturday, September 28, 2019. Jean was born in Oakland, California on June 1, 1946 to Thomas and Anne Underwood. 

She grew up in San Francisco and attended San Francisco City College until she moved to the family ranch in Paradise Valley with her parents in 1965.

She worked on the ranch with her parents and in 1968, she married Keith Thomas. Their first daughter, Cheryl was born in 1969, followed by Kristee born in 1974. 

Jean loved Paradise Valley and the ranch they lived on. Often calling it the “Most Beautiful Place on Earth”. 

Jean loved cooking at the Stonehouse. She cooked there since the Stonehouse became a bed and breakfast. She loved to celebrate guests’ happy events with them.

Jean enjoyed painting and had some shows with her work at the Art Gallery in Winnemucca. She loved to crochet, sew, knit and quilt. Her garden was beautiful, she could grow anything!

She loved playing bridge with the girls and pinochle with the Winnemucca Ladies Booster Club.

Jean is preceded in death by her parents; Tom and Anne Underwood, husband; Keith Thomas and her daughter Cheryl. 

She is survived by her daughter Kristee (Toby) Brinkerhoff, grandaughters; Bailee and Bryce, her sister; Sue Hall, nieces; Lori Marshall, Karen Vanduren and Hillie Johnson.

Friends came often to visit and when they left they were part of the family. Jean’s contagious laugh would light up a room. She had a loving and warm personality and found joy in everything. 

Jean will be missed by all. 

Respecting Jean’s wishes there will be no services.
