Jean was a graduate of Wheeling High School in 1954.

She was a homemaker whose passion were her grandkids. Early on, she watched them allowing Brenda and Mike to both work. The grandkids called her by “MEME.” She could always be found at one of their events, whether it was sports or school related. The grandkids could always be found just “hangin out” with “MEME” Their time together was precious.

Jean was a very kind person. She was a great listener who never judged. All who knew Jean loved her. She will be greatly missed by all that were lucky enough to have known her.

The family would like to give special thanks to the professionals at Liza’s place for their caring, and compassion.
