Jean lived in the Blackburn area all her life. She loved meeting people and made many friends over her lifetime. She had various jobs in the community and worked as a dinner lady, pub landlady, chip shop server, chemist assistant to name but a few.

Her family was the most important thing to her and took up most of her time but her other interests included foreign travel, dog walking, crosswords, listening to classical music, watching quiz shows, gardening, baking and cookery. She was an active member of The Friends of Corporation Park.

She will be greatly missed but her family take solace in the multitude of loving memories of happy times spent with her.
