Jean was my father's cousin. Her maiden name was Derr. My Dad's mom was Tillie Muffly. I know that Tillie had sisters but I can only recall Ida and LaVinia. Jean's husband was a college professor(?). Jean and her husband had two daughters. I have met Rebecca. Unfortunately, Jean, my Dad and Dad's twin all inherited kidney disease. Jean refused to do dialysis.
