Jean Clark Shouse Berry, died peacefully early Tuesday, March 4, 2014 in Dallas, Texas at the age of 92. Although Jean was a longtime Oklahoma resident and supporter, she had moved to Dallas for health reasons. Throughout her life she held her family, her friends, and service to her community very close to her heart. Her cheerful and generous spirit along with the high standards she exemplified will be missed by all. Jean was born May 1, 1921 to Vera and Glenn Clark in Ponca City, OK. Jean took great pride that both sets of her grandparents were in the Oklahoma Land Run. Her family eventually sold some of their land in Norman, OK to the state to be used for the future University of Oklahoma, where her father later played football. She grew up in Ponca City, graduated from Ponca City High School in 1938, attended Lindenwood Women’s College in Missouri for one year on a tennis scholarship, and graduated from Oklahoma University in 1942. She received an honorary doctorate degree from the University of the Ozarks, Clarksville, Ark. in 1990. Jean always felt she had been married to two outstanding men. As the war broke out in 1944 Jean married James Garnett Shouse of Muskogee, OK and they had three children together. Jim preceded her in death in 1954 from polio. Jean married Everett Edward Berry, of Stillwater, OK in 1961 and they both were an active and integral part of the Stillwater community until his death in 2003.

Jean was always an active member of a church where she lived.

When asked, she willingly served at the state level on the Board of Trustees of Oklahoma Arts Institute; was the President of Oklahoma State Chapter of P.E.O.; Chairperson of the Board of Trustees of the University of the Ozarks, Clarksville, Ark.

Jean’s lifetime of dedication was recognized with the Oklahoma Governor’s Arts Awards. As involved as Jean was with the community she was even more devoted to her family.
