South Portland, Maine - Jean was born in Andover, Massachusetts, 91 years ago, to proud parents Lawrence and Elsie Mason. After graduation from Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, she became a stewardess with American Airlines. Early on she flew out of Boston, then moved to southern California where she and William (Bill) Furlong married.\n\nHer grandchildren especially treasured her energy, strength, and sense of humor: Kathrine Gangeri (Michael), Charlotte Thibodeaux (Jonathan), Charlie Coudriet, Bill (B) Furlong and Garyn Furlong will dearly miss her love and care.\n\nGreatly saddened by the loss of Jean are Bill’s children: Kathrine Ann Coudriet Easlick (David) and William (Billy) Furlong ( Carla).\n\nEqually saddened by our loss are brother Alan Mason, sister Lee Ann Mason, Nephew Aaron and Louise and their daughter Graciela, and cousin Anna-Lena Frennesson (Rikard) of Sweden. Jean was pre-deceased by brother Jack Mason. She would wish to be remembered the special, loving relationship she had with her long ago deceased grandmother Maria Pearson.\n\nIn 2018, after Bill died, Jean moved to South Portland where she made many new friends while staying in touch with distant friends. She died March 13, 2023.\n\n Jean maintained an active relationship with Brewster Academy as alumna and with the Kiwi organization for most of her life.\n\nIn lieu of flowers, please consider memorial donations to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
