She was an avid reader and loved to travel. She visited many European countries, took many cruises, and visited many U.S. cities. Jean belonged to a Senior Bowling League and Bridge Clubs, and she enjoyed playing cards. She loved throwing parties and entertaining in her home, which was always open to everyone. She was a loyal supporter of all her grandchildren’s sports events. She enjoyed watching ballgames, Jeopardy, and Wheel of Fortune, and outdoor activities.
Jean was a loving, caring mother, beloved grandmother and great grandmother, and dear friend to many. And she adored her fur friend, her dog “Murphy.” She had a zest for life and lived it to the fullest.
