Jean E. Troutman

Jean E. Troutman, 90, a long-time resident of Mount Union, passed away Nov. 25 at Harmony at State College. Born Dec. 1, 1932, in Burnham, she was the daughter of the late John and Hazel Harpster Dean. She was preceded in death by her husband, Kenneth E. Troutman of Mount Union; a brother, Calvin Dean of Burnham; a sister, Hazel Egan of New Cumberland, and a niece, Mary Lou Egan of New Cumberland.

Jean enjoyed working with flowers in her yard and her bird feeders, and she was an avid sports fan, following the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Pittsburgh Penguins, and Mount Union Area High School teams. She was a good pinochle player, and in their younger years her and her husband had a reputation as outstanding dancers of the jitterbug. And they would never miss an opportunity to slow dance to Unchained Melody (their song). In addition to her love of her family, Jean was known for doing quiet deeds for people, particularly those in need. She was a 1951 graduate of the former Burnham High School, where she was a member of the girls’ basketball team. She was a member of St. Luke’s Lutheran Church of Mount Union.
