Jean was a stay- at- home mom when she wasn’t working as a secretary. She was organized, could type incredibly fast, and excelled in the lost art of shorthand. She loved going on vacation by car, motorcycle, plane, cruise – it didn’t matter, she was always ready to go. She was a fashionista before the word was created, always wearing coordinating clothing, shoes, and jewelry.
