Jean, as she was known by family and friends, graduated from the Wallace High Class of 1943, in Wallace, WV. Soon after graduation, she moved to Chicago to live with a sister and her family and began employment with the federal government. Jean then moved to Washington DC, continuing employment with the government until her marriage in 1947.
She then began one of life's most demanding and never-ending jobs; raising a family, nine boys & two girls, to later include a grandson. One of Jean's favorite hobbies was playing bingo, at which she made many friends. However, her greatest passions were viewing family pictures, having or attending family gatherings, and most of all, being with children. She was very proud of her West Virginia heritage and remained a loving, caring and watchful mother until her final days.
