Jean loved her family above all else. Her life was dedicated to Don, her kids and running a perfect household, along with her work as an office manager, and as an accountant for the King family businesses. You would often see her dancing with Don, or hear her singing around the house, to babies or in the choir at church, or taste her wonderful baking, especially at Christmas, created to give to others. She had a special talent for the written word that few saw, but if you did, it would touch your heart forever.
Her legacy and love lives on in her children,Donna Kluzek of Albuquerque, NM, Rick King of Columbia, Kevin King of El Dorado Springs, MO, Jeanette Jayne of Kansas City, MO, and Cindy Shaneberger of Wentzville, MO,her sister, Helen Malizia of Rocheport, MO, her 18 grandchildren whom she cherished, and 13 great-grandchildren.
