Jean worked as a Library Assistant at Linn-Mar Junior High School in Marion, Iowa. She loved life, decorating, gardening and her Iowa Hawkeye football. But, most of all she loved being a wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother – family was everything to her!
She was preceded in death by her parents; her loving husband, Richard John Gross; her sister, Susan Jacobson; and son-in-law, Richard Wright.
Jean is survived by her sister, Grace Stih; three children, Nancy Wright, Thomas Gross (Therese) and David Gross (Marguerite); seven grandchildren; four great grandchildren (soon to be five); and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Our mother, Jean, lived a beautiful life and set the example. She is greatly missed.
