Billie (Jean) Foran, the love of my life, left this place to join her Savior in Heaven. Jean passed on August 27, 2013, in Portland, Ore. She was in the Providence hospital stroke ward at St. Vincent.

Jean was born to Calvin Thomas Barnes and Eva Florence Dunbar Barnes of Pittsburg, Texas, November 2, 1934. She was preceded in death by her parents and siblings, Thomas Barnes, Ruth Barnes Ellis, Harold Barnes, John Barnes, and Robert Earl Barnes.

She is survived by her husband, Warren (Buck) Foran, of Eagle Point, Ore.; her children, Michael McCommon of Eagle Point, Ore., Lawrence LaCroix of Eureka, Calif., Vicki LaCroix Swink of Las Cruces, N.M., and Denise LaCroix Higdon of Palmer, Texas; four step-children, Cheryle Foran McCommon of Limmon, Colo., Warren Foran of Eagle Point, Ore., Deborah L. Foran Williams of Everett, Wash., and Dawn L. Foran Senac of The Woodlands, Texas; sister, Florence Barnes Olivi of Southaven, Miss.; sister-in-law Marilyn Reasons of Alamo, Tenn.; 14 grandchildren; 25 great-grandchildren; and nieces and nephews.

Jean spent 45 years as a book keeper, two of those years in the U.S. Navy, and retired from Bear Creek Corp., in Medford, Ore. She loved to cross stitch and spent hundreds of hours making each picture as near to perfect as she was able. They were given to family members with love and pride.

Jean is sorely missed by family and friends. Services will be held at a later date so that all family members can attend.
