Jean was a member of the First Baptist Church in Coeur d’Alene. Jean loved and enjoyed her family, vegetable and flower gardening of which she won many ribbons and awards at county fairs, oil painting, crocheting, sewing, knitting and camping. Jean loved to cook at her family’s hunting camps and her specialty was her fried apple pie. Jean loved to take care of people and prepare wonderful food for them; another specialty of Jean’s was her Elderberry “Bounce” liqueur. She loved to send letters and cards and was everyone’s prayer warrior; Jean would leave scripture notes around her home, such as, “Prayer is the key to Heaven,” “Faith unlocks the door.” She was so very much loved and will be greatly missed.
