Jean married first: Ernest Rucks. They had 4 children: Delroy, Rose, James, & Lane.

Jean had a(fifth child) daughter, Martha, who was raised by Jean's sister Norma. Martha did not know that Jean was her mother until about age 15.

Jean left "Ernie" then moved to California. Jean's 4 children were sent to be raised by other family members and friends.

While in California, Jean met and married Wilfrid Dudley Combs Jr "Pat". Jean and Pat had two children: Cathy Jean Combs and John Francis Combs III. Approximately 1958, Jean separated from Pat, leaving her two young children with Pat.

Jean returned to MN. There she met & married Robert S Barrett (approx 1967). Jean's 4th child Lane reunited with Jean approximately 1977. Shortly after Lane was adopted by Robert. New Name: Lane Barrett

The Combs Family had not seen or heard from Jean from the day she left. With the assistance of Dennis Johnson and another family member, information for this bio was gathered within the last month.

RIP mom. I wish I'd found you during the living years.
