Wallis, Jean M. With much sadness we announce the passing of Jean M. Wallis, a great lady, generous friend, mentor, and spiritual teacher, on Thanksgiving Day 2020. Jean worked for almost 20 years as a psychiatric nurse and was a founder of the Jonathan Group Home for Boys. In order to (in her words) "be with one of my first loves, chocolate" , Jean went to work next at Dayton's, starting in the confectionery and ending up as their Coordinator of Consumer Relations. She then started her own business, specializing in spiritual solutions for business applications, and giving presentations at conferences. Jean was also a medical transcriptionist for many years. Unlimited in spirit, Jean became an energy healer and hypnotherapist, psychic, ordained officiating minister, and meditation teacher, studying Fulfillment Meditation in Thailand. Jean continued to speak at various venues, wrote articles + made podcasts for the Edge publication, and wrote a book called, "Money is like a Cat". She taught courses in Emotional Empowerment, Universal Energy & Psychic Development, Exploring our Body, Mind, & Spirit, Eternal Love Meditation, and Kwan Yin Healing. Jean is preceded in death by parents, Robert/Eva Paulson, and aunts/uncles. She is survived by her beloved son, Joel Olson, and by many friends. She will be greatly missed. A private graveside interment of Jean's ashes will take place at 2:00 pm, December 9 -Crystal Lake Cemetery. A further celebration of Jean's life will be held in the summer.
