Jean was born on November 1, 1922 in Calgary, Alberta, the second child, to Ernest and Edith Lowrie. She lived in the Zella area and worked in Didsbury after finishing school.

They bought an acreage then the balance of the quarter west of Sundre in 1950 and set up farming. Jean was an avid gardener and spent many, many years beautifying her yard, something that brought her great pleasure. She also had a huge vegetable garden that she tended too. Berry picking was another hobby that brought her pleasure. She was a true “farm woman” working with the cows/pigs/chickens/haying etc as well as her roles of Mother and Wife. A life style she loved.
