Jean worked as a meeting planner for the Florida College of Emergency Physicians and Orlando Healthcare, the Billy Graham Evangelical Association in Minneapolis, and the Professional Meeting Planners Network in Durham, NC.
Jean enjoyed gardening and always had beautiful flowers and plants brightening her homes. She enjoyed hunting for antiques, refurbishing classic furniture and breathing new life into the treasures she found, which she shared with loved ones. She also enjoyed walking along the beach at sunrise and collecting beautiful seashells. She had many lifelong friends who loved her humor and wit. She always found joy in helping those less fortunate, especially in their greatest time of need. Most of all, she adored her family and was always happiest spending time with them. Her stellar sense of humor and boundless love will be treasured by them forever.
