Jean was born on December 9, 1936 in rural Johnson County, Iowa, the daughter of Stanley and Irene (Miller) Webster. She was raised and graduated from high school in Oxford and still to this day, maintained many friendships with her childhood friends and classmates.

Jean was a hard worker who always stayed busy but in her free time, enjoyed collecting pigs (of any variety), loved to gamble, play cards, liked to garden, watch Columbo, Iowa Hawkeye Basketball, horse racing and golf. Most importantly, Jean loved to spend time with her family.
