A short time later the happy couple was married and settled in Bear Creek Township. Jean left Carter Footwear to be a loving mother and to care for the couple's daughter Lisa. Throughout her life, Jean loved sewing, putting puzzles together, baking, and watching all the beautiful birds just outside her window. Her greatest accomplishment was being a loving wife, mother, and grandmother and we will miss her dearly.
