Jean’s upbringing on a farm instilled in her the value of hard work. Following her marriage in 1954, she made Windsor her home.

She indulged in leisurely activities such as Euchre, golf, and bowling and had previously worked at Irene Hill dress shop and Morris Sutton Funeral Home. Jean’s compassionate disposition and warmth touched the lives of all who crossed her path, particularly her children’s and grandchildren’s, who were the joy of her life.
