Jean taught two years in Mississippi and one in California before she married Jerry Marshall. While he was stationed at Victoria Air Force Base, she taught in Victoria, Texas. The rest of her experience was either in Indiana or Mississippi as she followed Jerry to his various job placements. She spent some years at home while the children were young. Due to the closing of five elementary schools, when Jerry was transferred to Anderson in 1980, she did not teach for the next five years.
Since her retirement Jean has enjoyed helping her son, Roger and his wife Janet take care of their babies. Sometimes she and Jerry travel to North Carolina to help her daughter Susan and her husband Vic with their three children. For the past six years, Jean has helped her sisters take care of their invalid mother.
At one time Jean's hobbies were reading and playing bridge. Now she collects Dept. 56 Villages with Janet. She loves to stumble upon the 50 percent off sales. Actually she goes out looking for them. On those lucky days she returns home with her car trunk full of buildings and accessories.
Most of Jean's travel experiences have been in the United States. She has also traveled to Mexico and Canada. After Jerry's Air National Guard unit was recalled to active duty and he was sent to France, Jean and Susan joined him there. While they lived there, they visited Germany, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Italy and Austria.
