Jennie Christine Stanford

February 27, 1950 — June 18, 2023

Jennie Christine Stanford, 73, of Paragould, passed from this life on Sunday, June 18, 2023. She was born in Richwood, Tennessee, on February 27, 1950, to the late Lloyd and Sadie Watson. Jennie graduated from Dyersburg High School in Dyersburg, Tennessee. She worked over 20 years at the Paragould Daily Press and retired as an Ad Supervisor. She then became the owner of Wallpaper For Less. Jennie loved flowers, and she was an avid gardener. Her favorite plants were her caladiums. She enjoyed going to the horse races and placing her $2 bets. Jennie was also a faithful viewer of soap operas. Her family knew not to call during General Hospital. While Jennie loved all of these activities, her biggest passion and love was for her grandchildren. She adored her family and loved watching her grandchildren grow up. Jennie was preceded in death by her parents, Lloyd and Sadie Watson; brother, Bill Lucas; and brother-in-law, Ronnie Lambert.
