Jean Avery Martin Millard, of Marietta, Georgia and a native of Savannah. She attended St. Vincent's Academy. As a single Mother she worked at Kennickell Printing Company and Savannah Bank and Trust to support her two children. She was always out spoken, determined and quick to give you her beautiful warm smile. She always put her children first. She loved to read, loved a good movie and loved her dogs. Anyone on her heart was showered with cards, emails, and calls. You always knew she was thinking about you. Let's not forget her love for holiday decorating. Not one square inch in her home was spared holiday handmade trimmings, mechanical, musical, and colorful items all came to life with her imagination and gift for making it magical.
