Jean grew up in Oak Park, Illinois, close to the studio of Frank Lloyd Wright, which started a lifelong interest in the homes and buildings by the famous architect.
Jean was also an avid seamstress, and she loved needlework. She often helped her daughter, Gail, in her retail store in Scottsdale, Arizona.
She moved to Sequim in 2002, and was known to many of her friends as a very sharp card player.
She was preceded in death by "the love of her life," her husband, Rolland E. Stanton, her parents, sister Rita Holmquest and brother Albert Branch Jr.
She is survived by her children, Gail Savage of Sequim; son Andrew (Georgiann) Jensen of Tempe, Arizona; son Christopher (Vicki) Jensen of Gig Harbor, Washington; and son Larry (Pat) Stanton of Fort Calhoun, Nebraska. She leaves a legacy of 8 grandchildren; 6 great-grandchildren; 1 great-great granddaughter and many nieces and nephews.
No service is planned. She will be interred in Prescott Valley, Arizona.
