Homemaker, longtime Gibson Island resident enjoyed sailing, traveling, playing golf

January 12, 2007

Jean A. Ault, a homemaker and longtime Gibson Island resident, died of breast cancer Sunday at her home. She was 84.

The former Jean Hall Abbott was born in Elmira, N.Y., and raised in Western Springs, Ill., and LaGrange, Ill.

She earned a bachelor's degree in human ecology in 1944 from Cornell University.

She was married in 1944 to Jesse Louis Ault, a Western Electric Corp. manager at the old Point Breeze plant who died in 1985.

Mrs. Ault had been an avid sailor, enjoying the Maine waters and Chesapeake Bay.

She played golf until she was 84 and regularly beat her children at the sport.

She also liked to knit, play bridge and travel.

FOR THE RECORD - An obituary published in yesterday's editions of The Sun for Jean Abbott Hall omitted the name of a daughter, Jennifer E. Ault, who died in 2003.
The Sun regrets the error.

A memorial service will be held at noon Jan. 17 at St. Christopher by the Sea, a nondenominational church on Gibson Island.

Surviving are three sons, Jesse L. Ault Jr. of Annapolis, James W. Ault of Reisterstown and Jeffrey F. Ault of Arbutus; a daughter, Jane A. Ault of Cockeysville; five grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.
