She was born November 2, 1932, at her parent’s home in Jefferson City, the daughter of the late Henry and Agnes (Jaegers) Goeller.
Jean was a 1951 graduate of St. Peter High School.
She worked from 1952-1960 at the Missouri Department of Revenue in the License Bureau. She continued her career at the Missouri Governor’s Mansion during the Ashcroft and Carnahan years. Jean enjoyed those sixteen years helping both families with all aspects of this historic home. Her roll recipe, lovingly referred to as “Jean’s rolls” are still used today on the Mansion menu. She also had a genuine talent for flowers and loved making beautiful arrangements.
She was a member of St. Peter Catholic Church.
Jean was an antique expert. At one time, she had a huge salt and pepper shaker collection. She was a talented cook and delighted her family every Christmas with “Grandma’s Mustard” as their gift. Her grandchildren remember the old cherry tree in her yard that they climbed as a favorite memory. Jean enjoyed the Central Bank Classic Club, parish picnics, and all dogs.
