In 1954 she married John I.

In her free time, she enjoyed entertaining friends and, above all, loved being surrounded by her family and her beloved grandchildren.

McGrath and her longtime companion Michael Mason of Norton.  She was the grandmother of Kellie, Michael, Matthew, Daniel, Kimberly, Kayla and Shauna and the great grandmother of Lola.  Jean was the sister of Carol Carney of Melrose and the late Paul Moran, Stephen Moran, Sheila King and Lois McGillvray.  She is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
