Obituary for Jean Marie Batton

Jean Marie Batton was born in Richmond, Virginia on November 20, 1922, as Jean Marie Schad. She died in the early morning hours on Mother's Day,

May 8, 2016.

Jean was one of four children of John and Jeanette Schad.

 She was preceded in death by her brothers, John Schad and William Schad. She is survived by her sister, Margaret Hirtz.

Jean married Dean Batton on June 21, 1941, in Pekin, Illinois where they made their home and life together. Jean and Dean have five children... Douglas, Edward (Janet) Batton, Mary (Mick) Jost, Daniel (Nelda) Batton and Gregory (Yvonne) Batton; Douglas died as an infant. Dean died in 2000. Jean's grand and great grand children were her joy;

Jennifer and Tom Sanzi (Camille), Jeff Batton and Jennifer Pawlak (Parker, Kaia), Jason Batton and Amy Kasper (Nolan, Miles) Mindy Jost, Amy and Joe Hirte (Allison, Madeline, Jordyn), Brian and Sarah Jost (Avery, Olive), Kevin and Koreen Jost, Beau and Angela Batton (Charles, Delaney, Everett), Sara Batton, Emily and Travis Talboys, Katie Batton, David Batton, Ginger Batton and Justice Batton.

Our mom was very good with love. While many may think it tragic that she passed away on Mother's Day, we think it is a fitting tribute. She loved being a mom more than anything else.

Jean was returned to the sides of Dean and Douglas July 9th, in a private ceremony, at St. Joseph's Catholic Cemetery in Pekin. Memorials can be made in her name to St. Joseph Catholic Church, Pekin, Illinois. The family entrusted Abts Mortuary in Pekin with her arrangements. Online condolences may be made at
