Although she was a homemaker, in her early years she worked at the egg auction and at Lasko’s metals. She loved to be with her loving husband and family. She enjoyed telling jokes, cooking, listening to music, and dancing. She was a sharp dresser who always had a well-coordinated outfit from head to toe.

Jean enjoyed music, dancing, playing card games, and watching Wheel of Fortune. She was an avid Philadelphia 76's fan. She enjoyed spending time with her family. Especially Thursdays; which were special days with their mom. She had a great love for her grandchildren who affectionately called her Mom-Mom.
