Jean was a beloved member of the Blair Memorial Baptist Church where she loved being with her friends and singing in the choir.
She was a fiery, compassionate spirit whose passion was caring for others. Her most rewarding job outside the home, was as a home health care aid. She also enjoyed doing anything outdoors, especially riding ATVs in the mountains and gardening.
