Tom and Gerry Clare

I remember working with Jean in real estate for many years. She and Tom were two of the nicest people we have met. I admired her love of family and work ethic as well. Sincere wishes and prayers to her family from us. She surely will be missed. peopleom

Fond memories of working with Jean at Century 21.

Brenda and Jay Kayne

Jean was one of our favorite people on the island. She was our realtor for the cottage we bought and sold and for the home we live in now. She was up front, fair, patient, and a dear person to be around. She made us feel so comfortable as we got used to the area. We recommended her to several of our friends who were house shopping, and we know that they two thought she was top notch. She was helpful and emanated a quiet dignity which we so much appreciated. She spoke about her children and her love of living on the island. I'm sure she is deeply missed by many people and all of her family.

Dr Ken and Michele Johnson

Jean was a wonderful neighbor and friend who we will miss greatly. Sweet memories of her riding her bike, gardening, and having large family gatherings will always be a remembrance. Our sincerest condolences to the family.

Becky Forbes

Of course I met Jeanne at Century 21 John T. Ferreira & Son. She was always so nice. Then when working at Hickory Ridge, I got the pleasure of selling a home to our beloved Mr. Barker. That's when the entourage spread to Jeanne and Tom, her husband. What a motley crew! They were fun loving, enjoyed their cocktails, ate out frequently, and I am so blessed I was included in parts of it. Jeanne will so be missed!

Priscilla Marshall

Anne, my sincere condolences to you and your family. My God be with you.

Tom Boyette and Lynda McHone

We met Jean at Thanksgiving. It was obvious how much she was loved by her family and friends. We wish we could have known her longer. May she find peace and love in heaven. She will be missed.


My Dearest Sister Jean, we promised that we would be Soul Sister for life, now it’s for eternity. So glad the last words we spoke was I Love You. Thank you for being my big sister and my best friend. I miss you so much and my heart is broken. I love you big Sis

Nelson & Bridget Dolbear

Sending our deepest sympathy to Uncle Tom, Anne, Patrick, Vince, Eddie, Therese, Erin and your families. Aunt Jean made everyone feel special. We looked forward to receiving her hand-written cards with the latest family photos over the years. She was so proud of you all and we loved that she kept us in the loop. And of course she had to give a shout out to her Jags in each letter. One of our favorite memories as adults was getting to go to a Jags game together. She will be dearly missed. Sending you all our love and wishing you peace.

Jean Ann Hable


Jean Ann Hable passed away unexpectedly on March 16, 2023, from complications during a routine heart procedure. She was born in Fulton, New York, daughter of Arlene (Hutchinson) and Donald Pachoud.
She was raised on a family farm, graduated from Mexico Academy and joined the United States Air Force in January 1961 as an Air Force nurse. While stationed at Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska, she met and married the love of her life, Thomas Vincent Hable from Oshkosh, WI, on April 24, 1965. Jean joked that she out-ranked Tom not just in the Air Force but throughout their entire marriage! One month and one day after their marriage, Tom received orders for Vietnam. He left in late August and Jean returned to the family farm where she gave birth to the first of their six children. When Tom and Jean reunited, he began his career with the Federal Aviation Administration as an air traffic controller, which required six multiple moves: Leesburg, VA; Syracuse, NY; Farmington MN; Clay, NY; and finally to Fernandina Beach, FL in 1987.
After many years of raising her children and being an active volunteer in their schools, Jean embarked on a successful career as a realtor with John T. Ferreira & Sons – Century 21 (now Miller Elite) in downtown Fernandina. Jean earned many real estate awards and had a highly successful career spanning 30 years. Jean loved making the Island her family home, often spending time on the beach searching for sharks teeth and walking trails for alligator sightings. She was actively involved in numerous community and church organizations throughout her life. She gave of herself to whoever needed it and enjoyed volunteering with organizations such as Birthright, Sea Turtle Patrol, Keep Nassau Beautiful, Red Hat, Hibiscus Garden Club, Barnabas and Council on Aging. Jean always had a smile on her face and made a friend wherever she went. It’s just who she was; she will be deeply missed by many.
Jean’s love for her grandchildren (Kayleigh, Danielle, Tim, James, Lauren, Taylor, Mitchell, Ian, Christopher, Harper, Tierney, and Tristan) and several great grandchildren was immeasurable. She was actively present in their lives, and was their biggest cheerleader. Meme’s house was the definition of love and every grandchild treasured Jean’s cuddles and hugs. They remain tucked snuggly in Jean’s heart as she now watches over them from heaven.
Jean was a proud Jacksonville Jaguar fan and a founding season ticket member. She fiercely defended her Jags and when there was a loss, “it was the refs’ fault”.
Jean was predeceased by her mother and father. She leaves behind her husband of 58 years Tom and six children: Anne Marie Hable-Mabe (Randall), Patrick Hable (Karen), Vincent Hable (who maintains Jean as his ”hero”), Therese Allen-Kopinski (Chris), Ed Hable (Laura), and Erin McCarthy (Sean). She is also survived by her brother Donald Pachoud, Jr., and four sisters: Barbra Waldron, Judy Dolbear (Nelson), Joy Klinger (Dale), and Diane Pachoud and a large number of nieces and nephews.
Viewing will be from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm on Tuesday March 21, 2023 at Oxley Heard Funeral Directors, Fernandina Beach. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Fernandina Beach on Wednesday March 22 at 11:00am, followed by a reception in the Parish Hall.
Rather than flowers, her family asks donations be dedicated, her memory of Jean to Nassau County Florida Council on Aging, 1901 Island Walk Way, Fernandina Beach, FL 32034.
S’long “ole’ Girl”, I love you…Tom
