Jean was born June 6, 1937 in Wisconsin Rapids to William Schenk and Helen (Deranek) Schenk. She graduated from Assumption High School in 1955(the first graduating class). She worked as Secretary in the city clerk’s office from 1955-1967. Jean took a break from work after the birth of her daughter.

They built a new home in Arpin where they lived for 26 years. There they owned and operated Evergreen Acres (later Arborvitae Acres) Nursery from 1966-1991. In 1994, they moved to Wisconsin Rapids. After retirement they spent countless months on the road traveling to 48 states. They loved the Milwaukee Brewers and made many trips to Brewer games with friends.
