She served the people of Clearfield County as the Deputy Prothonotary and Clerk of Court until 2003 spanning nearly 30 years. But her most important and coveted job was taking care of her family.

Jean was a member of the Emmanuel United Methodist Church of Clearfield for 73 years and participated in the Church’s Make a Joyful Noise gospel choir.
