Jean was a sweet, kind hearted person who enjoyed people and helping whenever she was able. She was a very good cook but she had not been able to cook for many years. She was also a savvy business woman. She was a member of the Roadrunners and had fun on trips with friends. In later years while she was still physically able, Jean and Dale traveled throughout Canada and across the United States (3 times) with Carolina Tours. The highlight of one trip was Jean's walk across the Golden Gate Bridge at 81 years of age. Jean was happy working with her flower garden and maintaining her beautiful yard. Mowing her lawn gave her great pleasure.

Jean was a charter member of Mid-Carolina Country Club where Jean and Thurmond enjoyed many years of golfing with family and friends.

For a while Jean was the tournament chairman for both clubs and spent tireless hours ensuring that all tournaments ran smoothly.

Jean enjoyed seeing her Bojangles Breakfast friends, Larry and Lynette Bobb, Mrs. Virginia Wicker, Mrs. Violet Perry and Mrs. Kathleen Wilson. Jean and Dale also enjoyed interesting conversations with her neighbor, Larry Crosson.

Jean appreciated her next door neighbor, Frank Baughman, who watched her house and yard to see that all was okay and provided help when needed. Jean was thankful for Boyce Goodman's help through the years, especially the years during Thurmond's illnesses.

Despite bone problems throughout her life, Jean had a very happy, full life and was richly blessed.
