Jean will be forever loved and missed by her children Rick (Cathy), Jim (Ellie), Joni (Darl), and Mary Lou. Proud Gramma of Bill (Sarah), John (Erin), Matthew (Dani), Casey (Danielle), Danny (Miranda), Cortney (Richard), Jason and Tessa. Cherished Great-Gramma of 13 Great -Grandchildren. Beloved sister of Ruth Burtt. Jean will also be remembered by her niece, Adrienne (Randy) and nephew Lindsay (Lori) and their families.
