Jean Y. Mohr was born in Fort Dodge, Iowa, on Feb. 22, 1920, and died in Wheat Ridge on Dec. 31, 2008.
She married the love of her life, Harold Mohr, on July 4, 1942. Jean became a well-respected local watercolor artist, capturing the beauty of Colorado and ocean landscapes.
Jean was a strong, independent woman and an avid Broncos fan and reader. Her stubbornness was more than offset by her comic playfulness and zest for life. She retained a wonder and delight for the beauty in the world, from the first spring flowers to a Mozart concerto.
