Miss Jean and her family

Seventy-seven
- a number that exudes RESILIENCE!

“77” is a number that signifies navigating twists and turns in life. And with this, it is with heavy hearts that we inform you that our dear pillar, Doris “JEAN” (Gay) Sanders Hackney, aka “The Grandmother of North Philadelphia” has received her wings on April 30, 2024.

Mrs. Jean served as a well-respected community leader, and her commitment to “Grands As Parents” was unwavering. She was never shy about advocating for her community and remained steadfast in her mission.

We know that Mrs. Jean would want the vision of “Grands As Parents” to press forward to fulfill her legacy. We ask for prayers and love during this trying time.

Mrs. Jean is preceded in death by her husband Thomas Hackney, and son Christopher Sanders, Sr. To cherish her memories, Jean leaves to mourn her sister, (Mary Brown), and her loving grandson (Christopher Sanders Jr.), in conjunction with a village of loving nieces and nephews.
