By Scott Graves, The Curry Coastal Pilot

Jean Christensen, 65, of Brookings, passed away Jan. 31, 2013, at Sutter General Hospital, in Crescent City, due to complications from cardiac arrest.

She was born March 17, 1947, in Pittsburgh, Calif., to Arthur and Helen Christensen.

She grew up in Brentwood, Calif., and raised her only child in Oakland, Calif.

She earned a degree in music from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. She was a wonderful classical pianist, and enjoyed spending her free time playing.

Jean retired when she was 50 years old, and eventually moved to Brookings with her partner Bill Hammond.

She loved to travel, and visited many parts of the world. Her favorite destination was Ireland. She was a wonderful woman with a big heart, a bright smile, and a warm laugh. She will be missed dearly.

Jean is survived by her daughter Phaedra Hammonds; granddaughters Nyeri and Maya; Bill Hammond, her partner of 15 years; brother Carl Christensen; and her beloved dog Riley.

At Jean's requested no service is planned.
