Jean was truly an asset to the American Legion Auxiliary Lisbon Post 1342. She always had a smile and a story to tell. We will surely miss her dedication and her sense of humor. Rest In Peace Jean till we meet again. ❤️

Thank-you Jean for your 65 years of dedication to the veterans of our country. You were a faithful member,worker of our auxiliary, at Lisbon American Legion Post # 1342. We all have great memories of the times shared there with you and Don. You never tired of the mission and the work of the American Legion.

Jean was an enormous help to us when we established the Lisbon Depot Museum. She gave us some of Don's treasures that he acquired in the Navy and a wonderful old tin plate train he had as a child. Jean was friendly, generous, and a fine lady who will be missed. Blessings.
