Mary Jean Hope

May 13, 1928 – June 23, 2021

Mrs. Mary Jean Hope, age 93, of Omaha, passed away on Wednesday morning at her residence with family by her side.

She was born on May 13, 1928 in Omaha, a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. James F. Minar.  She married Thomas A. Hope on August 12, 1950 and had six children.

Jean was preceded in death by her husband of nearly 47 years, Tom; her sons, Robert and Michael Hope; granddaughter, Allison Hope; her parents, James and Antonia Minar; and her three sisters and their spouses: Ann Marie and Richard Adams, Ruth and Joseph Toman, and Mary Patricia and William Howard.

Jean is survived by her daughter, Tamasine (Radley) Clemens; her sons; Thomas M. Hope, Stephen (Katy) Hope, and Richard (Sandy) Hope; daughters-in-law, Rhonda Hope and Leanne Hope; nieces and nephews; thirteen grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind many other family members and friends who will sadly miss her.

Jean was a devout Catholic and a dedicated customer of the Millard Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8334 through the service of her husband, Tom.

Just like her favorite chocolate covered cherries, she was a queen and as sweet as could be.  We all will miss dearly our “Mother Hen.”

Jean’s family will receive friends on Monday, June 28th from 4:30pm to 6:30pm at the West Center Chapel, followed by VIGIL SERVICE at 6:30pm.  MASS OF CHRISTIAN BURIAL: Tuesday, June 29th at 10:30am at Mary Our Queen Catholic Church, 3405 S. 118th St.  Interment: Calvary Cemetery.  In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to the family.

    What a beautiful soul just entered Paradise! And as God would would have it, I passed by your home yesterday morning to see the fire truck & ambulance on your street and prayed hard for your mom & the whole family.

    What a blessing to know her children will continue her loving faith-filled legacy. But the agony of missing her is numbing and gut wrenching, May the Holy Spirit guide you in the days ahead. Jean and each of you are all in our prayers. With deepest sympathy and great faith you’ll meet again at Jesus’ feet on a day that never ends. Wendy & Bob Synowicki

Say hi to dad, Boobus, Mike, Gramps and grandma and all my aunts and uncles. I’ll see ya later.

    Gma jean,
    I am forever going to miss our Sunday dinners together. I remember when we would have so many people at your table to share all the memories and laughters with you. I will truly miss our cabin vacays with the entire fam. I am happy that you are finally reunited with grandpa and can be with your sons, Boobus and Mike. Please watch over Ma and I will always call her when I get home. Aidan, Mason, and Shea III already miss you. Rest In Peace Mother Hen. I love you❤️
