Born Emma Jean Bradford on June 25, 1943, Jean was the daughter of Henry and Daisy (Wadkins) Bradford. She was born near Hoffman Lake and spent her formative years in Silver Lake where she attended school.
A hardworking, kind person, Jean would do nearly anything to help someone in need. She was an active member of God’s Highway to Heaven Church. She loved animals of all kinds, especially hummingbirds, and was known to care for the strays and wild animals too. Second only to her love for Christ, loved her family, especially her grandkids, at her house there were very few rules! Her grandkids would often call her Gma or Grammy. She enjoyed cooking and was tickled to share the fruits of her labor with her family when she could. She even showed her love for friends and neighbors by cooking for them regularly.
