Jean was born in Syd­ney, Cape Bre­ton on June 15, 1931 to the late El­dred Hef­ford and Mag­gie (Ritchie) Hef­ford.

Jean was a ded­i­cated mem­ber of the Sal­va­tion Army Com­mu­nity Church and was very in­volved with the Home League, League of Mercy, Fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties and loved to vol­un­teer for any­thing that in­volved the Church.

Jean was a walker, a bowler, a dart player and a line dancer. She loved to camp out and Swim on the Mira. She loved mak­ing ce­ram­ics and a lot of peo­ple have the ben­e­fit of own­ing one or more of her pieces. She also en­joyed play­ing Scat and usu­ally hosted a friendly Fri­day night game on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. Jean was a very so­cia­ble woman and made many friends ev­ery­where she went.
