After many years of service Jean retired from the State of Texas in 2002. Jean will always be remembered for her infinite love to her family and friends and constant support she gave to all who knew her. Some of her greatest joy came from attending and supporting her sons and granddaughters activities from baseball, kickball, softball to dance.

In addition, she enjoyed cooking for her family and was lovingly referred to as “Granny’s Meals on Wheels.” She enjoyed volunteering at the senior citizens home and participating in school activities as president of the PTA at Brentwood Elementary School and McCallum High School athletics booster club. She was full of life and love.
