Jean was born August 14, 1948 in Hibbing to Quentin and Katheryn (Jugovich) Jivery. Jean attended Hibbing High School and married Ken Korhonen on July 6, 1968. They lived in Swan River and Grand Rapids until they bought a farm and settled in Goodland where they raised their two sons. Jean was an excellent cook and worked at several local restaurants.
