Jean ((MacEwen) de Krafft ( Jean’o) who was born in St. Andrews, Scotland on April 26th 1910 was laid to rest on August 17th 2013 in her home town. She died December 18th 2012 at her home in Fullerton. A lovely service was performed by The Rev. Gordon Ogilvie at St. Andrews Episcopal Church which was attended by 26 family and friends from the UK, Spain, USA, The Netherlands, France & Fullerton who joined Steve and Trish which was wonderful. Burial followed in the family plot in the Eastern Cemetery of St. Andrews Cathedral. Jean’o is survived by her daughter Trish (Patricia) and her husband Steve Lewis, her sister Sheila MacEwen of London, nephews Peter MacEwen and his wife Siri of Sotogrande, Spain and their family; Alastair and his wife Hilary of Buckland St. Mary, UK and their family; James MacEwen of London and his son; and Bob (Robert) Miller of Walnut Creek, CA and his family. Jean’o came to the US in 1950 when she married Bill de Krafft and lived in New York, at Pine Valley Golf Club, NJ, and in Chestnut Hill, (Hill House) Philadelphia where she lived for 29 years before moving to Fullerton to join her daughter and son in law in 1995. She had many friends in Chestnut Hill and was active in a number of charities in the area and a member of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. Jean’o was always a very positive person and regardless of circumstances her enduring motto was always “Press On”. She is missed very much by family and friends all over.
