She was very outgoing and loved life. She loved to crochet, write poetry, listen to music and sing. She was an avid listener to WNRI radio station of Woonsocket, where she loved to call in to discuss politics, current events, and other topics of interest. Jean was a very giving person. She would always strive to ensure her family and friends were well taken care of and if she couldn’t help, she would find a way to get that help.
