Prior to her marriage to Edgar Allen in 1951, Jean worked for Aetna Insurance in Louisville.  Together, they dedicated themselves to working on the farm side by side.  Jean would pull plants, strip tobacco, cook for the farm hands and undertake any task that needed to be done.

Jean’s fighting spirit saw her through battles with both breast and stomach cancer.
