Jean was born on April 6, 1930 in Milwaukee, WI the daughter of Douglas and Elizabeth (Burkhouse) Beay. Jean grew up in the Milwaukee area and married the love of her life, Robert Young in Milwaukee in 1948. The couple enjoyed many years of marriage together until Robert’s passing in 1985. Jean was a very social and talkative person. She enjoyed flowers, both real and artificial and created many arrangements for her friends. She was very crafty and artistically gifted. She especially enjoyed crocheting, and made many afghans, pillow covers and other works. Jean could be spicy and did not mind telling the straight truth. Cardinals and other birds brought a lot of joy to her as well. She loved feeding birds and squirrels outside of her apartment and watching them play. Jean was a good lady and she will be dearly missed by those she leaves behind.
She is survived by her family and her dear friends.
She is preceded in death by her parents and her loving husband, Robert.
