She was a devoted mother who worked hard to instill proper morals and principals in her children. Jean worked for 25 years and retired from the Huffy Corporation in Celina, Ohio. In 2005 she returned to Kentucky to be closer to her mother and siblings. The last few years of her life were spent living in Louisiana with her three sons.
