In 2005, she returned to Abilene and lived there for twelve years renewing old friendships while being a member of the Abilene Women's Club, Los Aficionados, and The Episcopal Church of the Heavenly Rest. Jean enjoyed her women's investment groups and bridge clubs.

Jean was adventurous and loved traveling the world learning about new places, people and things. She was a lifelong learner and had a wonderful sense of humor.

Her family and friends were always amazed at her vast knowledge of all subjects and attention to details. She was truly a treasure.
