Jean was born in Duryea, PA and moved to Somerville as a young girl. This was where she met her husband, raised her family, and lived for most of her life. She worked for many years as a teaching assistant, helping countless elementary school children to read, a role that combined her love of children with a passion for books and knowledge. However, her most treasured role was taking care of her family. Jean will be remembered for her quiet strength, wisdom, grace, and sassy wit and she will be forever missed by her grateful and loving family and friends.
