Jean was a sweet loving soul. Anyone who knew her knew how much her family meant to her. Her pride and joy were her two sons. Nothing gave her more joy than spending time with her kids and her husband. She had the biggest heart and would always help those in need. Jean enjoyed listening to music, she could dance for hours especially to Spanish music. She was always smiling and laughing with her amazing sense of humor. Some of her favorite things to do were shopping and cruising around town listenig to the radio. Jean loved getting together with family for the holidays. She also enjoyed candles and was an avid Denver Bronco fan. She will be greatly missed by all those who knew her. We'll miss the way her smile would light up the room and how her grace touched all of our hearts.

A 10:00 A.M. graveside service will be held august 15, 2019 at Calvary Ce1metery in La Junta.
