February 16, 1951 ~ August 26, 2021 (age 70)


Crammer Jean Pearce was born as the first of identical twins in Raleigh NC to parents John "Jack" Pearce and Thelma Estelle Husketh Pearce. The second twin, Clara Joan Pearce was to be her closest friend and sister for the remainder of Jean's life. Jean and Joan had two older sisters Jackie Thelma Pearce and Linda Carol Pearce and a younger brother John Robin Pearce.

Jean married young in life to David Rex Silver, Sr who served in the US Navy. After a short marriage, Jean returned home with her son David Rex Silver, Jr and began working to support a new family on her own. Through many professional endeavors, Jean ended up working as a Production Manager for multiple Telecommunications companies. She grew in responsibility and talent eventually working with Ratheon on government projects. She and her team produced various government devices including but not limited to radios, radar equipment, and satellites. She also produced equipment for the civilian police use as well. She worked very hard as a provider and Mom for the majority of her life, routinely working two jobs to insure David had what he needed growing up.

In 1987, Jean met Jimmy Howard Coley and they were married for nearly 20 years prior to his death in 2003. Jimmy and Jean enjoyed attending Bluegrass Festivals for many years. After Jimmy's death, Jean enjoyed family most of all.
