    • “Jean was educated in Temple and Belton, Texas where she graduated as valedictorian from Belton High School in 1947. She attended the University of Texas at Arlington. After being married, the couple moved to Houston, Texas where she worked until her son was born. Her proudest accomplishment was having her son receive a four-year scholarship and graduate with both a bachelors and masters degree. She enjoys reading, travel, cooking, and fashion…”

She also volunteered at the Houston Museum of Art and M. D. Anderson. Jean and Edgar formed the Von Rosenberg Foundation for promising young college students to help them achieve their educational goals. She was passionate about her family, travel, fashion, politics, and reading. All who knew her could appreciate her sassy sense of humor.”
