Marguret Jean (Stice) Grogger was born October 27, 1927 in Harrisonville, Missouri, daughter of Crawford and Katherine (Sulser) Stice. She graduated from Harrisonville High School in 1947; she and her twin sister, Margurite Agnes were well-known members of the girls high school basketball team. Jean graduated from a secretarial trade school in Kansas City in 1951. She was united in marriage to Morton Edward Grogger, Jr. in the summer of 1954. Jean worked for 17 years at Lake City Army Ammunition Plant, taking a two year break to stay home with her newborn daughter. She returned to work at the plant until taking early retirement, coming home to manage and work on the dairy farm when her husband’s health prevented him from working.

She was also a member and past secretary of the Dairy Herd Improvement Association; past president and past secretary of Jemor Farms, Inc., until her son-in-law became president and her daughter became secretary. She belonged to Bayard Chapter 179 Order of the Eastern Star, and was Matron in 1987. Jean also served as mother advisor to Rainbow Girls Assembly #36 in 1973.

Jean was preceded in death by her husband, Morton Edward Grogger, Jr.; her twin sister Margurite Agnes (Stice) Frevert; and brothers Warren Crawford Stice and Horace Stice.
