In 1941 the family moved south of Adrian Oregon where her father, LW Dierking, established a farm. She attended the one room schoolhouse at Napton (Adrian area) until the 8th grade and graduated from Adrian High School in 1949.
On January 8, 1950, Jean married her high school sweetheart and love of her life, Kenneth Price, quietly before church on Sunday morning. Kenny and Jean built their home in 1952 where they raised their family and still reside, south of Adrian. Jean was a great hostess and loved to entertain. She was a true homemaker, gardener, caregiver and devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Her sweet and gentle spirit was the bind that tied the family together.
She was an active member of the Adrian Presbyterian Church, a VBS and Sunday School teacher; a charter member of the Owyhee Garden Club; a member of the Ridgeview Pollyanna Club; the Golden Girls; Cub Scout Leader and 4-H sewing leader.
