Jean took a job in the kitchen of St. Peter's Infirmary, while there she was offered a chance to attend classes to become a Nursing Assistant. Jean graduated and continued to work there until her retirement in 1975. After retirement, golf became her passion, each fall she would pay next season's membership saying "this gave her the incentive to stay in shape over the winter months." Jean continued to golf 2-3 times per week until the fall of 1998. Jean enjoyed a long and full life and will be missed by her family, and those who knew her. The family sincerely thanks the management and staff of St. Elizabeth Villa for their kindness and caring of Jean over the past 13+ years. A private service will take place.
