Jean was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother, who devoted her life to her children.
She lived her faith and she passed this faith on to her children and to so many who loved her so. Jean had a great compassion for others in pain and her gift of writing as used by God to help others through their trials through letters of encouragement she wrote to them.
