Jean Sanford Lundstedt, age 89, met Jesus face to face, May 10, 2017.

Jean loved everyone.  She opened our eyes to see the grand beauty in little things.  Along with flowers, singing and dancing, she loved adventure whether at home or abroad.

She taught "Adventures in Writing" for 35 years through Worthington Parks and Recreation.  She provided a safe place where people could express themselves freely.

She journeyed through her life with people at the Unitarian Church, Unity, North Community Lutheran Church, Columbus International Program, the Scandinavian Club, the Ohio State University Women's Club and more.  She concluded her life worshiping Jesus with people of Westminster-Thurber and Vineyard Columbus "Generations" home group. She sang and praised him even on the eve of her death.

Preceded in death by husband Sven, daughter Margaret, brother Sandy and sister-in-law Marian.  

Survived in order of birth by brother, David and sister-in-law Raquel; children, Peter Lundstedt and Janet Keller; grandsons, Daniel Keller and David Keller; nephews, Ken Sanford and Richard Sanford (Deanna); and nieces, Dianne Costa (Frank), Debbie Eagleton (John), Denny Parker (Austin); and their families.  She loved them all.
