Jean’s heart belonged to her husband Leonard, and they were soulmates. She loved their precious dog, Zip, going hunting, slot machines and Blackie, her truck. A wonderful teller of life stories, Jean enjoyed the outdoors and wildlife and wouldn’t hesitate to take action if either were being threatened. She was a fabulous cook and her homemade yeast rolls legendary.

Those who knew Jean witnessed her strength, humor, kindness and caring. She was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by her friends and family.

Jean’s tribute was beautifully written in her honor by her family.
