Jean retired from the Central Virginia Training Center. Upon her retirement she very much enjoyed quilting, knitting, traveling, spending time with friends and family, lively political debates, and countless hours of Fox News, Duck Dynasty, and the Food Network. She never missed voting in an election, and yes, has already mailed in her absentee ballot!
