Jean was super witty and extremely funny. She loved pulling pranks on others and especially on her twin sister Janet. She was devoted and dedicated in everything she did, a loving and caring daughter, sister, teacher and friend to many who will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
Jean loved the great outdoors and all of God’s creatures. She relished the ranching lifestyle, showing her horses and cattle and raising her chickens. Jean also enjoyed vegetable gardening. She was always so passionate about the simplest things surrounding her.
