Honoring those who have served and sacrificed
Through the unique artistry of beaded tapestries
Jean Louise Haines Stone
This is Jean Louise Haines (Stone). She joined the Marine Corps in 1943, and proudly served our country during WWII.
According to her son, James Stone, his mom "joined the Marine Corps in 1943, against her brother Roy's counsel. He was serving in North Africa at the time! She went to Boot Camp at Camp LeJuene and then was trained as an Avionics tech to repair F4U Corsair components, but the needs of the service prevailed and she ended up at Camp Pendleton, north of San Diego, working for a China Marine, Colonel Sturgess, as his chauffeur.
She was honorably discharged as a Sergeant, and after the war she returned to Ohio and graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. She met my Dad (an Army Vet) at Miami and they were married in June 1949. My mom was a Marine til the day she died and she is buried at the Western Reserve National Cemetery in Seville, Ohio, not far from where I grew up in Medina, Ohio."
