The daughter of Mary and William Alexander who had homesteaded in the southern part of Alberta (later known as the Kinniburgh district of Purple Springs), Jean grew up on the family homestead.
She married Leonard S. Danforth and settled in Kinniburgh district where they farmed for many years, but later moved to Taber where they spent the remaining days of their lives.
Jean was a life long member of the Kinniburgh Women's Institute, greatly enjoying the meetings held in many area farm homes where she could visit with friends and neighbors, something that she loved to do. Many a baby was taken home from the Taber Hospital wearing one of the numerous sweater, bonnet and booties sets that jean knitted and donated. Only failing eyesight in later years put an end to this pastime.
She passed away at the age of one hundred years and eight days.
