She was preceded in death by her son, Randy at the age of 6 years; her parents, Lawrence in 1980 and Edna in 1984; and her former husband, Melvin in 1998.

Jean is survived by her daughters, Deborah (Tom) Haverkamp of Seneca, Pam (Randy) Lang of Seneca and Penny (Wayne) Stallbaumer of Wakarusa, Kansas; seven grandchildren; and 22 great grandchildren.
