Wilma "Jean" Forren Stanley, 57, was granted her angel wings on June 25, 2012, after a strong and courageous battle with cancer. She was born on May 12, 1955, in Ronceverte, W.Va. to Edwin and Florine Forren. She was employed by the Botetourt County building office and moved to Chesterfield County in 2002, where she continued her career as a combination building inspector/ supervisor. She also served on many state and national building code committees. Jean was an incredible person and loved spending time with her parents, children and grandchildren. She is survived by her father and stepmother, Edwin and Ruth Forren; mother, Florine Forren; brother and sister-in-law, Dallas and Brenda Forren; daughter and son-in-law, Shannon and Donnie Harless; son and daughter-in-law, Shawn and Jennifer Stanley; grandchildren, Mitchell, Kierstyn, Austin and Maddie. Jean also leaves behind her beloved uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces, cousins and close friends.

Jean was a dedicated daughter, mother, grandmother and friend. She was kind, selfless and adored by everyone who knew her. She will be greatly missed and never forgotten!
