Jean was a graduate of Lewes High School, class of 1976 and then went on to become a medical assistant for the next 38 years. Jean was known for her vibrant personality and as a warm, positive individual filled with love that always had open arms for anyone that needed it. Known to many as "Aunt Jean", she always tried to see the positive in everything and everyone, never failing to put a smile on your face with her contagious laugh, incredible sense of humor and great conversation. Jean’s love for her family and friends was always her top priority, while being "Nana" to the newest member of the family, was the highlight of her life.
