Andrea Jean Hull

Edgar's picture

Andrea Jean Hull died April 6, 2016, at home in Bethany, Oklahoma, following a lengthy illness and penetrating grief over the death, in 2014, of her beloved husband. Now she has been reunited with him in ecstasy for eternity. Jean was born September 25, 1947, in Anadarko, to A.J. Schwarz and Betty Bryan Schwarz. She graduated from Cordell High School in 1965, and went on to attend the Oklahoma College for Women, in Chickasha, and later Cameron Junior College, in Lawton. In 1968, Jean married her high school sweetheart, Marlin Hull. They made their first home in Lawton, and later moved to Marlow, where Jean was a homemaker and served as a Boy Scouts den mother. She later returned to her studies at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma, in Chickasha, graduating in 1985, with a Bachelor of Science in biology. After moving with her family to the Oklahoma City area, Jean took a position at the Oklahoma City-County Health Department, where she worked as a microbiologist and later as a chemist in the water quality lab. Later she moved to the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality, where she worked as an Environmental Specialist before health troubles forced her to retire in 1999. Jean so loved gardening, her husband built a greenhouse for her in their backyard. She kept their flowerbeds overflowing with irises, her favorite flower, and tended the family’s vegetable garden with loving care. An avid birder, Jean was known to slam on the brakes during country drives and shout the scientific name of whatever feathered creature she’d spotted. Jean also enjoyed fishing for bass and crappie at Lake Eufaula with her husband, children, and grandchildren. She also was known and loved for her often acerbic sense of humor. Jean was preceded in death by her parents, husband, and two brothers: David Schwarz and Phil Schwarz. She is survived by sons, Bryan, of Oklahoma City, and Andy and wife, Kenzi of Mustang; daughter, Beth Hull Gollob and husband, Shawn Gollob of Edmond; sisters, Nona Johnson, of Bethany, and Amy Canoy, of Lexington; seven beautiful grandchildren; and many other beloved relatives and friends. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, April 16, 2016, at Yanda and Son Funeral Home, 1500 W. Vandament Avenue in Yukon. Online condolences may be signed at www.yandafuneral.com.
