Jean Teague Branstetter, age 96 years, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away Wednesday, March 10, 2021 at her home surrounded by family.

She was born on July 13, 1924 in Fort Morgan, Co., the daughter of William and Verdia (McIntosh) Teague. She was married on August 4, 1941 in New London, Mo. to Richard Branstetter who preceded her in death on September 19, 2011.

Jean was a 1941 graduate of Farber High School in Farber, Mo.

She was a strong woman of faith and a charter member of First Presbyterian Church. Jean cherished her involvement and served as the Deacon in the church and was a dedicated member of her Women’s Circle.

A long-time resident of the Jefferson City, Jean was a dedicated homemaker. She gracefully fulfilled her role as military wife and mother and took pride in the service rendered by her men. She often volunteered to help with girl scouts and cub scouts while her kids were young and loved being involved in a variety of their activities. Jean lived a long and fulfilled life; she will be missed by those who knew and loved her.

Survivors include: two sons, Rick Branstetter (wife Betsy) of Jefferson City, Mo. and John Branstetter (wife Nancy) of Highland, Mi.; one daughter, Peggy Snell (husband Jim) of Branson, Mo.; nine siblings, Bud Teague (wife Leota) of Vandalia, Mo., Bill Teague (wife Deborah) of Mexico, Mo., Wayne Teague (wife Mary Jane) of Bellville, Ill., Donna Tipton (husband Claudie) of Farber, Mo., Jim Teague (wife Ardis) of Caldwell, Id., Jerry Teague (wife Patty) of Mexico, Mo., Ronnie Teague (wife Irma Sue) of Springfield, Mo., Jack Teague (wife Linda) of Loch Lloyd, Mo. and Faye Teague of Overland Park, Ks.; seven grandchildren, Michael, Kristen, Aaron, Bill, Sunny, Johnny and Lauren; 13 great-grandchildren, Emma, Malachi, Ava, Courtney, Brooklyn, Taylor, Kate, Ben, Chloe, Drew, Kaitlyn, Kendall and John Henry.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her loving husband of 70 years, Richard; three sisters, Mildred Wilkinson, Velma Motley and Mary Crow; one brother, Mack Teague; and one infant grandson on August 11, 1977.

A funeral service will be conducted at 11:00 a.m. Monday, March 29, 2021 in the Freeman Chapel with the Reverend Dr. Angela D. Madden officiating.

Dear Peggy,
We are so very sorry for your loss. It has been nice to see you and your husband in the "back pews" of the Presbyterian Church over the past few years, as you joined your Mom on special events and holidays, and Gary and I did the same with my Mom. I think our Moms had those seats reserved for them for many years! I remember your Mom in Girl Scouts, but most of all am grateful for her friendship to my Mom the past 25-30 years. May you all find peace in knowing you were always there for her.
Barbara (Tetley) and Gary Anderson

Please accept our deepest heartfelt sympathy for your mother's passing. May she rest in God's loving arms forever. She lived a long, good life. Our classmate (Doyle Russell) lost his mother when he was 5 years old. He remembered his teacher at West School taking him upstairs to 6th grade to his brother's class because Doyle wouldn't stop crying. He missed her every day until he passed away 4 years ago. God Bless Us All. Semper Fidelis.
