At the age of four, her parents purchased a farm six miles east of Carmen, Oklahoma. The family farmed for several years until she was seven years old. Due to her father’s poor health, they purchased property and moved into Carmen. Her father passed away when she was 14 years old. Jean attended school in Carmen and graduated with the Class of 1953.

She met Harry Standers, a law student in 1958, and the two were married in May of 1958 in the Little White Chapel in Las Vegas. They divorced in 1965.
