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.”

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.
