Friday December 25, 2020

Jean Freeland Boyer, 93, recently of Kankakee, Illinois, joined the Lord for eternity on December 25, 2020 surrounded by loved ones.

She was born January 28, 1927 in Bessemer, Alabama to Sewell and Elizabeth Williams.  She was raised in Gadsden, Alabama before moving to Northwest Indiana, and then to Illinois.

Jean is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Max Colley; husband: Horace Freeland; and husband: Frank Boyer; her brother Charles (late Shirlee) Williams; and great-granddaughter, Ruby Stech.

She goes before her beloved children: Charles (Susan) Freeland and Beth (Kevin) Wischnowski; treasured grandchildren: Meredith, Charles, and Jack (Misti) Freeland, and Tiffani (James) Stech; and her always cherished and talked about 7 great grandsons.

Jean was an accomplished and well-respected professional and contributor to the Dyer community.  She owned her own accounting firm for over 50 years, filing her last client tax return at 86 years old. She also served as the Town Board President in Dyer from 1984-1987, where she led the way in the building of their Town Hall. She was active in her community church, loved Jesus with all of her heart, and taught many women’s Bible studies over the years.

Jean will be missed by her church family at Bethel Baptist Church in Bourbonnais, her special friends Billie Dodson and Mary Hawkins, and many staff and friends at the Citadel Care Center. She touched the hearts of all she encountered with the love, grace and mercy of Jesus, and will be fondly remembered by all who knew her. “Well done, good and faithful servant.” Matthew 25:23
