Jean earned a master’s degree in education from Xavier University and taught school for 30 years in the Boone County Education System in Florence, KY. She was a wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother. Jean had a passion for gospel music, cooking, reading, and travel, however her favorite thing was to spend time with family. She found great joy in her three grand children and loved to spend time with them.

Our family mourns the loss of a kind, gentle, and loving wife, mother, and grandmother. Although her physical presence will be missed, we find great comfort and peace in knowing she is in Heaven with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
