Sprinkles are for winners.
Jean obtained a degree in Journalism from the University of Texas at Austin; but followed her father into law enforcement, working for the Travis County Sheriff's Office as a Correctional Officer for 10 years. In 1996, she completed training for certification in semi-conductor manufacturing and was employed by Motorola/Freescale/NXP Semiconductors until the time of her passing.
Need the home court advantage.
All who knew Jean were impressed by her quick wit, with many a "Life Lesson" passed on from her collection of quotes, tips and anecdotes. She was a collector of kitchen gadgets...anything with a plug on it, the latest and greatest "Instapot", Vitamix, coffeemaker, or other accessory to create culinary delights. She was an avid cyclist, enjoying the trails and byways of Austin and Hays County. She was also a fantastic listener and accepted everyone equally. Her loud infectious laughter could brighten anyone's day. Hey Jean, don't look now but...(cue Jean sharply turning her head at the wrong moment). Most of all, Jacob would like everyone to know she was a GREAT Mom.
Not my first rodeo.
Surviving Jean to treasure her memory are her son Jacob H. Mullins (her world revolved around 'The Boy'), very best friend Sandra Mullins (who was at Jean's side until the very end), Sister Deneen Reed, brother Craig Polivka, her beloved dog Marley and a very close network of friends and colleagues from a life well lived.
What up, my peeps?
A memorial service will be planned at a later date.
