Jean is the 3rd generation on her family farm, homesteaded in 1889. She retired from Tinker AFB after having spent a year in Viet Nam as a Procurement Specialist.

She had extensive hobbies and was very involved in all manner of crafts. She was an avid gardener and had a collection of more than 78 varieties of Iris. Jean doted on her children & pets. She was very involved with ancestry research and traced her family back to the Daughters of the American Revolution & the Grey Ladies. She is survived by four daughters, 2 sons, 6 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren and 1 great great grandchild. Her family also includes 9 spouses and many close friends. Funeral services will be October 17, 2016 at 2:00pm in the Chapel at Groves-McNeil Funeral Service of Piedmont, OK. Interment will be in Kansas Cemetery, Piedmont, OK.
