Jean Rose McGill, 76, of Little Rock, passed away May 25, 2019. She was born October 5, 1942, in Houston, Texas. She was preceded in death by her parents, Millard and Mary Gregory. Survivors are her husband of 54 years, Stanton McGill, and daughter, Shannon McGill. After moving from Houston to Little Rock, Jean was a dedicated teacher for over 30 years. She was devoted to her family, fellow teachers, and students throughout her adult life. At one point in her career, she went back to school to achieve a Master's Degree in Education while still working and taking care of her family. In more recent years following her retirement, Jean enjoyed traveling, searching for antiques, and maintaining booths at antique malls with her daughter, who was her biggest fan in life. Her fitness classes at Pleasant Valley Church of Christ also meant a great deal to her, and her family is grateful to her instructor and classmates for their support and concern for her. While her heart became weak physically, Jean's true heart was strong, pure, and full of love for people. She will be remembered for her graciousness, gentleness, and her beautiful smile. To spend time with her was a joy. Jean's life was a gift to her family and friends, and she will continue to be loved and missed greatly. The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Hospice Home Care, UAMS, and Presbyterian Village for the care she received. Visitation will be from 1:30-3 p.m., Friday, May 31st, at Ruebel Funeral Home. There will be a private graveside service in honor of her life. Arrangements are by Ruebel Funeral Home. Friends are invited to sign the online guestbook at
