She married Dale C. “Sammy” Dershem January 27, 1945 in Indiana, he preceded her in death January 9, 1987.

Survivors include a daughter, Kathy Bushnell of Piqua; three sons, Ron (Dee) Dershem of Davisburg, Michigan, Fred Dershem of Springboro, Dave (Theresa) Dershem of Piqua; ten grandchildren, Dusty Dershem, Carmen Ballard, Kevin Dershem, Keri Macklin Dick, Matt Bushnell, Amy O’Brien, Andrew Dershem, Graham Hardesty, Becky Sutton, Michael Slaven; 22 great-grandchildren; one sister, Vivian Kinnison; and three brothers, Marion Adams, Max (Gloria) Adams, and Sam (Jackie) Adams.

Jean was a 1944 graduate of Newton High School. She worked many occupations over the years including fabricating gliders at Waco, as a canner at the tomato cannery; but when she was asked, she would tell people she was a farmer first. She was a member of the Covington Church of the Bretheren. She enjoyed crocheting, playing cards, reading, gardening, fishing and camping. She was the “family photographer” and enjoyed documenting her family and their lives through photographs which she kept in many photo albums. She will be deeply missed by her loving family and friends.
