Jean had a wanderlust and adventurous spirit. She loved to travel the highways and byways between New England and Florida in her blue Mustang convertible. She was an avid reader, great cook, loved flowers, baskets, shaker boxes and all things Native American, feeding the birds and watching the activity on the farm pond. She also had family gatherings playing scrabble and skip-bo.
