Jean also loved spending time with Dolores and Dan Whipkey and the numerous friends she had. She was also an active member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Shreveport, LA. Jean had a very strong will and didn`t have an ounce of quit in her. She was one to always complete what she started. She stayed strong until the end.

Jean & I were distant cousins who worked on genealogy together through e mail . She was living in Clearwater , Florida at the time.
We had planed to go to the library together but never got a chance to do so. Altho I never met her in person we became very close. She moved to Ca in 2007 for her health, she had breathing problems. She is greatly missed.I am not sure at this time where her burial is
