Nelda Jean Ragsdill, 85, of Waco, passed away Wednesday, February 6, 2019. Funeral services will be 1:00 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 9, at Greater Waco Baptist Church, 912 TX-340 Loop, Waco, TX, with Pastor Nehemiah Torberson officiating. Burial will follow at Oakwood Cemetery.

Jean was born to the Harris family September 27, 1933, in Anna, TX. She was the last of 10 children. She attended school in Anna until she graduated high school. Around 1950 she moved to Waco, TX, where she attended Baylor University. Jean received her Bachelor in Education, with a major in Spanish and a minor in English. She began teaching at Waco Independent School District and retired from there after 47 years. In 1978 Jean married the love of her life, James (Jim) Ragsdill. She and Jim have been members of Greater Waco Baptist Church since 2000. Jean loved children and worked in the children’s ministry and the nursery at the church until she was no longer able. Jean had a life-long passion for animals of all shapes and sizes. She rescued as many as she could and often brought many home. She had many friends and one of their favorite pastimes was shopping. She was loved by many and will be dearly missed.
Jean was preceded in death by her parents and all of her siblings.
Jean is survived by her husband, Jim Ragsdill; son, Kenneth Burk; several nieces and nephews; along with many friends.
Special thanks to The Atrium at Bellmead for the special care given to Jean.
