She volunteered for many organizations throughout her life; one in particular was for childhood diabetes. Jean was also actively involved with the St. Paul HOG Chapter. Her love of motorcycling throughout the country allowed her to meet a lot of great people. She took pride in hosting the polish picnic for family & friends and enjoyed sharing her love of horses with her grandchildren. After retiring from 3M, she worked for a company called UASG, doing what she loved graphics with her beloved friends, Peter & Kip. Due to her illness she was forced to retire on Jan. 1, 2012. She did many travels throughout her stint at UASG and without the help of Sue this would never have been possible. No matter how sick Jean was she never missed a meeting with her guys at USAG. Throughout her 7 year battle she never lost her faith in God or her sense of humor. Jean has touched many lives during her lifetime and she will truly be missed. Jean has requested that Harley attire be worn for the day. 651-455-2035.
