Upon retirement Jean and Lon settled in Oracle, AZ, where they enjoyed a vibrant community of wonderfully thoughtful and loving friends. They were the life of the party and enjoyed their time in Arizona immensely. Jean would also rarely miss Trivia Nights on Wednesdays. She will be missed by many friends and her family.
