She was an accomplished seamstress making many clothes for herself and relatives, including a wedding dress for her nephew's bride. Her Avon sales kept her busy for many years. She also enjoyed memberships in the T club and the American Legion Auxiliary.

Jean was preceded in death by her parents, William and Lola BRECKENRIDGE; one sister Reba ERICKSON and her husband Kenneth, Sr.; and one brother Billy.

Services were held at the United Methodist Church in Tingley on Thursday, December 2, 1999 with Reverend Jeff FLAGG and Reverend Eydie STEPHENS officiating.
