Laveda Jean Caldwell

September 9, 1936 - October 12, 2019

Laveda Jean Jackson Caldwell, beloved wife of Jack Caldwell, departed this earth  on October 12, 2019 surrounded by her family. She was born in Farmersville, Texas on September 9, 1936 to Madine and E.D. Jackson. 

She graduated from Farmersville High School in 1955 where she was class salutatorian. After graduation, she passed on a college scholarship to enter the working world. When her daughters were born, she quickly became the consummate room mother, troop leader, and cheerleading sponsor and her home was the place to be for a sleepover or to just hangout. The greatest joy in her life came from her family. 

She loved spending time with her children Kelly Caldwell and Stephanie and Dan Prescott and grandchildren, Alex and Jess Prescott, Ethan Prescott, Jordan Prescott, and her great grandson,Jacob Prescott. She was preceded in death by her sister Alice and brothers Dewey and Jerry. 

Jean was happily married for over 62 years to Jack Caldwell. Together they enjoyed traveling, from annual ski trips, to weekly visits to Choctaw. She loved attending her grandsons’ basketball games spanning many years and endless gyms. 

The family would like to express special thanks to Jean’s devoted nephew, Craig Caldwell, for his kindness and care for her these last several years. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Rodgers Baptist Church (where she attended for many years) in Garland, Texas or a charity of your choice.  

A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, October 23 at Rodgers Baptist Church, 801 W. Buckingham Road, Garland, TX 75040.

Laveda was a gem. She was someone you could always count on to share a big smile and a laugh--like we were in on a secret that no one knew. She saw brightness and kindness in everyone. I'll miss her kind nature and gentle touch. Janet Baum, October 15, 2019 I am sorry to hear about Jean. I worked with her for several years at Region 10. She was always so sweet and always had a smile. Fran Pritchard, October 15, 2019
