Born Nov. 4, 1925 in Hunter, NY she was the daughter of the Agustus and Mildred Overbaugh. Jean had worked at SNET and then Nichols Bus Service but she most enjoyed being a mother and homemaker. Dad called her his Little Chickadee. She was the love of his life and he was the love of her’s. She enjoyed New Years at Hammonassett and flying a kite no matter the temperature, Camping and sitting by a wood fire, hiking Mt. Washington, spending three days on the Appalachian Trail, cooking outdoors over an open fire, working in the garden, running the wood splitter, shingling a roof, or reading or playing games with the grandchildren. Soccer or baseball it didn’t matter she was always game. She enjoyed Herkermer diamond mining, making Christmas cookies or hot cross buns at Easter. Family dinners ended with putting on country music records and she would sing while doing the dishes.
