Jean married Del Blacketer in 1958 and shortly after moved to Portland, though for most of her life she would reside in Milwaukie. She worked for Food Services of America until her retirement. Jean enjoyed visiting with family and friends, making crafts, caring for her beloved cats, traveling to western states with friends and visits with her father in Woodburn.
