Jean spent her entire career working for CIPS/Ameren until she retired in 2009. Jean was a die hard Chicago Cubs fan and was a loyal follower of University of Illinois sports. She loved attending her daughters’ sporting events when they were growing up. She loved baking for her family and made the best chocolate chip cookies, snickerdoodles and homemade ice cream. Christmas was her favorite time of year and she really enjoyed decorating with her family. Jean will be remembered as a devoted wife and mother who will be deeply missed. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a donation in Jean's name be made to The Alzheimer's Foundation at or by mail to Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, 322 8th Avenue, 16th Floor, New York, NY 10001.
