Jean loved going to the lake, camping, sitting on the porch in the evenings watching the sun set, getting together for birthdays and holidays, watching Jack play baseball, spending time with all of her grandchildren, eating Bar-B-Que, hot dogs, and chicken, and waffles from I-Hop, watching old movies while having popcorn or ice cream, or, on occasion, both.
She will be missed by many who knew and loved her.
