Jean graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School in Beckley, WV in 1951. She was married to the love of her life for 63 years, Jerry Link on May 9, 1953. The couple raised three children in Beckley before retiring to New Smyrna Beach Florida in 1986.

She was an active member of the First Baptist Church of New Smyrna Beach and prior to relocation, was an active member of the Maxwell Hill Baptist Church in Beckley, W.V.

Jean was preceded in death by her parents and sister, Dema Miller Fitzgerald.

    I met Jean when Ed and I moved just a few houses away. Jean was one of the first people to welcome me and I still have the cactus plan she said "She always brought to the new neighbors." My memories of Jean always have her smiling and laughing, even when she wasn't feeling 100%. She was a strong, kind woman that I will dearly miss. May the wonderful memories of Jean bring comfort to you, Jerry, as well as her extended family.

    The strongest woman I have ever known. She was my best friend in New Smyrna Beach. I loved her and will miss her. We had loads of laughs at our card games, We thought alike in most areas. I will see her again some day.

    Jerry I am so sorry to hear of Jean's passing. She was a special lady. She was waiting for me outside at Bert Fish when mom passed away. She hugged me and we cried. I'll never forget her. But you know Mom was waiting for Jean in Heaven and one day we will see them again. What a glorious day it will be.
