Jean Dulaney

FENWICK ISLAND — C. Jean Dulaney, age 88, passed away from natural causes on Sept. 3 at her home on the bay in Fenwick Island, Del.

Born in Baltimore, she grew up in Hampden with her two older sisters, Alice Burns and Butch Crawford, who later in life called themselves “The Golden Girls.”

Known for her pleasant manner, ready smile and personal warmth, after graduating from Eastern High School she worked as a secretary until marrying Jack Dulaney and becoming a mother to two sons, Jay and Jamie. After a divorce, a marriage to Don Miller produced a daughter, Vicki. Jean later remarried her first love Jack, and lived in Phoenix, Md., Montreal, Canada, and Westminster, Md. before becoming a widow and settling in Fenwick Island. She was a successful business owner and co-founder of Premier Glass and Screen, working every day until her retirement.

Devoted to her sisters, she helped to care for both of them until their deaths. She took care of a lot of people quietly and without fanfare, whether they needed a hug, some money, some listening time, or a token of appreciation. Jean enjoyed her family, traveling, music, dancing, and relaxing on the porch. The memory of her spirit will live on with everyone who met her.

She is survived by her three children, Jay Dulaney, Jamie Dulaney, and Vicki Burrs; three grandchildren, Joshua, Ashley, and Tyler; and three great-grandchildren.
