Jean Halterman

April 18, 1926 — October 23, 2023

Winchester, VA

Edna Eugenia Halterman, lovingly known as Jean, peacefully passed away on October 23, 2023, at the age of 97, at the E.A. Hawse Nursing & Rehabilitation Care Center in Baker, WV. She was born on April 18, 1926, in Baker, WV, a daughter of the late Donald Eugene Hott and Edna Florence Poland Hott. Sisters, Marguerite Harper and Nola Clark and brothers, Warden Hott and Harlan Hott also preceded her in death. Jean was a cherished mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, who will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

In her early years, Jean was an avid sports enthusiast, excelling in basketball. She found joy in cheering on the WVU Mountaineers football team and following Major League Baseball. Jean had a passion for playing Bridge with her friends and always brought her competitive spirit to the table. She was also renowned for her culinary skills, particularly for her mouthwatering buckwheat cakes that were savored by her loved ones.

But above all, Jean's greatest joy in life came from watching her children and grandchildren grow and thrive. Her love and devotion to her family knew no bounds, and she cherished every moment spent with them.

She is survived by a daughter, Donna (Michael) Doran of Winchester, VA; a son Jay (Dawn) Halterman of Martinsburg, WV; five granddaughters, Lori (Charlie) Boswell-Haggerty of Winchester, VA, Lindsey (Roberto) Udasco of Ashburn, VA, Whitney (Cullen) Croson of Stephens City, VA, Amber Halterman of Petersburg, WV and Emily (Andrew) Cox of Frostburg, MD; three grandsons, Tony (Kim) Halterman of Petersburg, WV, Patrick (Paige) Halterman of Petersburg, WV and Zachary (Allie) Bennett of Myrtle Beach, SC; two brothers, George (Betty) Hott of Moorefield, WV and Wendell Hott of Yellow Springs, WV; a sister-in-law, Joan Hott of Hampton, VA; nine great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

A Celebration of Life will be held 2:00 PM, Sunday, October 29, 2023, at the Fraley Funeral Home Chapel, 107 Washington Street.  The service will be officiated by Pastor Dan Sterns, offering comfort and solace during this time of reflection.
