Through the years she took pleasure in bird watching. You could find several bird feeders throughout her yard, along with different flowers to attract a variety of birds. Jean and Walter would frequent the Williamston Senior Center where they were able to enjoy taking many trips with their friends. Jean would spend her Sunday mornings attending service at Oak Grove United Methodist Church where she was fond of watching Walt sing in the choir.
