After her retirement, her pastimes included bingo at San Manuel and seeing Broadway Theatre in Los Angeles. Jean had a passion for children and would donate each year at Christmas time to Toys-for-Tots and other organizations. Jean had a very forgiving soul as well as a heart of gold and had a strong desire to see those around her thrive and do well. Her sense of humor allowed her to assume the role of matriarch in such a way that you loved to be part of her family.
