Jean loved the outdoors, cross country skiing, reading, traveling to new places on vacations, fishing, camping. She enjoyed her job at Intel in New Mexico and the friends she made there.

She enjoyed being with family and friends when she could. She was a member of the Union Baptist Church in Richwood, Ohio. Jean was kindhearted and willing to help people when she could, she gave from the heart. We will miss her smile, and kind voice when she greeted every day with a smile.
