BRADFORD - Jean Frances Bradford, age 84, passed away peacefully on Sunday, September 3, 2017. 

She was born to Edna White Schliess Jenks and Edward Schliess in Battle Creek, Michigan. Jean graduated as valedictorian from St. Philips Catholic High School and attended Nazareth College.  Jean was a devoted wife and mother who was a champion of the family dinner, played bridge with treasured friends, was a master bargain clothes shopper, and loved watching sports, especially when family was somehow involved. Jean was always an eager babysitter for both her grandkids and “granddogs.”  She was a long-time active parishioner at St. Pius X.  Two years ago, Jean moved from Michigan to Chicago to be closer to her children.

Jean was preceded in death by her beloved husband Robert Russell Bradford and grandson Drew Daniel Bradford. 

She will be deeply missed by her six children, Brian (Chris) Bradford, Kari (Don) Nicholls, Tim (Tracy) Bradford, Bill (Kathy) Bradford, Kelly (John) Lawrence, Kristi (Chris) Bradford-McDougall; 13 grandchildren, Corey and Nick Bradford, Erica Bradford, Katie, Meagan and Erin Bradford, Molly, Rob and Abby Lawrence, Kelsey, Annie, Patrick and Maureen McDougall; and four sisters and their families, Kay Brooner, Peg Bradford, Sally Hammond and Vicki Clark. 

A Mass of a Christian burial will be offered at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at St. Pius X Catholic Parish, 3739 Wilson SW, Grandville, Michigan. Visitation will be at 10 a.m. on Wednesday preceding the funeral mass.
