In addition to her husband and her parents, Jean was preceded in death by her eldest son, William Moorman and her seven siblings.
“Mean” Jean was a sweet, loving person to her family and friends. The nickname was merely a warning to those who tried to get in her way. She was known for her joviality, relishing any moment she could to playfully stick her tongue out at someone as well as show off her colorful command of the English Language.
Jean was an original member of Piketon’s Volunteer Rescue Squad. She worked at Martin Marietta Atomic Plant in Piketon for more than a decade, retiring in 1994.
She served as a 4-H advisor in Pike County for more than 20 years. She also dedicated her time, especially later in life to volunteering at a local food pantry and Bridgehaven homeless shelter in Waverly.
In retirement, Jean enjoyed traveling and spending time with family. She also enjoyed patronizing the fine dining establishment Waffle House.
She was an avid bowler, spending countless hours on the lanes at the now defunct Weiss Recreation bowling alley in Waverly. The shelves of her living room were lined with photos of loved ones and all her bowling trophies.
She was a devout Catholic and a longtime member of the St. Mary’s Church in Waverly. She helped her eldest grandson pass a statistics course by praying the Rosary.
No funeral or viewing service is to be held. A mass will be held at a later time.
