Jean was a longtime member of St. Joseph Catholic Church and enjoyed showing the love of God to others as a volunteer in the Church and at the local soup kitchens where others were in need. She also loved helping to bake and package Christmas cookies at the Albright United Methodist Church during the holidays.
Most of all, she was a loving mother and grandmother to her family. She loved spending time with them going to plays and the theater and taking the grandchildren “back to school shopping” every Fall.
