|November 26, 1947 - August 11, 2015
Jeanne Patricia Palmer, 67, of Rogers, AR passed away
peacefully early Tuesday morning, August 11, 2015 at
Circle of Life Hospice in Springdale, AR after a
courageous two year battle with cancer. A twin, she was
born as Brenda Sue Stemen on November 26, 1947 in
Little Rock, AR and became the adopted daughter of
William Jackson and Genevie Ruby Qualls Hurst.
Although she was never able to find her birth parents, the
Stemens, her adopted parents provided nurture and love
that sustained her throughout life. Growing up in Rector
Arkansas with her identical twin sister Judy (Barbara
Lou) she learned the value of hard work and family
closeness in the cotton fields of northeast Arkansas. Her
father Senator William Hurst brought the girls to Little
Rock many times where they played in the State Capital
chambers when in session.
After spending most of her life and career in Austin
Texas working as office manager for IAS Claims, Inc she
retired to Rogers in 2011 to be closer to her twin sister,
Judy Hurst Huneycutt. They enjoyed travel, shopping
and watching movies together and were inseparable over
the last few years. They were so grateful for the time
they had together.
She was preceded in death by her daughter, Missy
Palmer and her parents.
Jeanne is survived by two children, son, Scott Palmer and
Vonnie Vasquez of Austin, TX, daughter, Cynthia Brown
and husband, Steve Booth; two grandchildren, Marshall
and Jake; twin sister, Judy Hurst Huneycutt and husband,
Marc; her Rector High Girls; and many dear friends.
She unselfishly chose to donate her body to science.
A memorial service will be held at 2 o'clock pm Thursday
August 13, 2015 at Stockdale Moody Funeral Chapel to
celebrate her life. Chaplain John Pate will officiate.
In lieu of flowers, please direct any memorials to Circle
of Life Hospice, 901 Jones Road, Springdale, Arkansas
