As the wife of a career Air Force Officer, Jean made homemaking an art in base housing from Omaha, NE to Spokane, WA and Dayton, OH, and across an ocean in Wiesbaden, Germany, (and places in between) before finally settling in Wichita in 1964.
She was “Grandma Jean” not only to her children’s children, but also to their cousins, and their friends. She made every birthday and holiday a day filled with memories to cherish. When she became great-grandmother to Hayden, Gavin, Ethan, Theodore, Weston, Oliver, Kensley, Morgan, and Juniper, she was delighted with the addition of “great” to her title, and no one deserved it more. She will be greatly missed by all of us who loved her, but we will celebrate the blessings of her life with great joy until we meet again.
