Jeane would like to let you know that her work here is done. She received a call, a sort of an offer you can’t refuse, for an appointment from which she will not be returning.
To send flowers in memory of Carolyn Jeane Burruss (Rozzell), please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
This assignment comes with a huge sign-on bonus, a reunion with family and friends she has not seen in a long time and Michael Buble and Blake Shelton songs are always playing in the background. Job security is exactly 110 percent. Her new mission takes her to a wonderful place where she will be socializing, networking and dancing to her heart’s content. Music, laughter and love are guaranteed. Food is delicious and you never gain an ounce. She left detailed instructions for all to celebrate her mission here, which has now been completed. Low adherence to this instruction will not be tolerated.
Jeane loved Amish cheese curds, Arkansas bacon, Tuckers onion burgers, Heru egg drop soup, fried bologna sandwiches, Steel Magnolia’s, Shrek, Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang theory, Red Beer, her hair rollers and talking Workforce to anyone that would listen. Not necessarily in that order.
We want to let her know that she did an amazing job and wish her a safe journey. We will remember her smile, her warmth, her energy, her love for life, her humor, her giving heart, family and friends, and also work colleagues, many of whom over time also became her closest friends. She worked very hard all of her life, up until the very end. She made a difference in the lives of so many. You may hear this and recall her words or actions that touched your heart, tickled your funny bone or maybe even made you say “huh?’.
We are going to miss you and hope you keep us in your rolodex for good references when we too go to meet you in the big office in the sky.
Jeane was born June 7th, 1947 in Bartlesville, Oklahoma to Hewey M and Iomagene Plunkett Rozzell. She was the first and only child and the light of their lives.

She moved to Dallas and worked for Texas Instruments before marrying John Dennis Espinosa. After they were married, they moved to Idabel where their daughter Stephanie was raised. She was so proud of her daughter Stephanie and all of her accomplishments and she loved being a mother and was also a proud “Gammy to Gentry Raine.
