Mrs. Nancy Jean Baird Clay, born March 31, 1949, went to her heavenly home on August 18, 2019. She was predeceased by her father, William T. Baird and mother, Hestella W. Baird.

Baird (Carol); nieces: Alicia Clary (Rick), Lisa Horoszewski (Devin), and nephew, Lee Cundiff (Erin) and many loving great nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and in-laws. Jean loved God, life, family, friends and children. For many years she worked as a full-time substitute teacher at Brunswick Academy and held many fond memories of the children she touched. Off and on health issues plagued Jean for the past few years, but she was always optimistic and never gave up. On Friday, Jean knew the end was near, so she had special words with each member of her family. This time will always be remembered and cherished by them.
