Jean grew up in Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire, England. After the Second World War she immigrated to Sydney, NSW Australia where she married her husband Miles Henry Lasater. They traveled around the country for several years before moving to her husband’s home state of California in the USA.

They loved to travel and in later years her husband’s work took them to Europe, The Canary Islands, Australia, and Egypt. They eventually retired to Alma, Arkansas and then to Searcy, Arkansas.

Jean volunteered over 5500 hours at the White County Hospital in Searcy, Arkansas. She loved to read, play cards, and bingo. She was active in her senior center in Searcy.
