When Jean graduated she moved to Charlotte through encouragement from her twin sister, Jeanette. There she met her husband, Michael and moved to Huntersville where they raised their two boys, Dennis and Mark. She was a stay at home mom until she went to work for Eckerd’s Drug Store. She had a love for fishing. Upon retiring they moved to Holden Beach where she enjoyed walking out on the pier anytime and catching fish. She liked teaching everyone the joy of fishing. She was blessed to make many friends there who cared for her deeply. She felt blessed to help and give back to her community.

Her family would like to thank her caregivers; Debi Hogan, Jordanna Jones, Carol Coffman, and Marion Bracey, who made it possible for her to remain in her home on the waterway so she could continue her pastime of watching the boats and fisherman.
