Gean was a member of First United Methodist Church and a long time bookkeeper for Southland Furniture. She loved to travel, and taking advantage of husband Cletus's employment at Braniff Airlines was able to see much of the United States and Europe. Her favorite travel destination was visiting the Islands of Hawaii. Playing bridge, attending the Symphony, and crosswords were some of her favorite pastimes and she loved nothing more than to be out in the yard pulling weeds, a sight well known to many.
