Jean was a member of First Freewill Baptist Church of O’Fallon, she enjoyed her ministry of music at the church. She loved taking pictures and everyone who came in contact with her was drawn in by her contagious smile and awesome laugh. No one ever had to wonder what she was thinking. . . not a shy bone in her body. When Jeannie loved- she loved with her whole heart. Jean was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Memorials may be made in Jean's name to Muscular Dystrophy Association.
