Jean Boyett (b. 2/21/1936 - d. 8/11/16) was diagnosed with MSA (Multiple System Atrophy) (https://www.multiplesystematrophy.org/about-msa
) in 2012. MSA is a neurological degenerative disorder that causes problems with movement, balance and autonomic functions of the body. MSA is a terminal illness with no known cure. It often presents with some of the same symptoms as Parkinson's disease. Jean resided at home with her husband of 57 years (married in 1959), Dick Boyett, her primary caregiver. Jean is survived by her husband Dick and their three sons (Joe, Jeff, and Kenny) and five grandchildren (Brittany, Mattie, Emma, Tate, and Jett). This site is to provide regular communications about Jean's situation to friends and family who want to know how she is and how they can help.
