Jean worked as a nanny for several families throughout the years, she mostly recalls the McCaff’s in Wyoming, OH. She also was a housekeeper in a few different hotels. Jean’s most memorable job was working for MRDD. “Mama asked me why I was working with those women, and I said, The Most High put them on the Earth for somebody to take care of, it minds as well be me,” she exclaimed. Her heart was like pure gold when it came to serving and caring for others.
A homebody at heart, she didn’t enjoy traveling much, but in her mature years she experienced vacations to places like Bahamas and Panama City. A true creative indeed! Jean enjoyed crafts, painting, coloring, and beading art. She loved cooking and gardening as well. Her mind was sharp. We believe it’s because of all the books she read, and those word puzzles she enjoyed doing so much.
