She was born August 5, 1929 at her Grandmother's home near Soda Springs, Idaho, the first child of Walter James Moore and Elsie Marie Hopkins. She spent many happy hours at her grandparents farm riding horses, milking cows, feeding lambs, gathering eggs and fishing with a willow pole. Their home had no indoor plumbing, electricity or central heating. The pump on the porch supplied the water. Her mother passed away when she was only 9 years old leaving her and her younger brother, Dean and sister, Lenniss. At the age of 10 she moved in with her Grandmother to help her run a boarding house. She met her future husband, Robert Call, when he came to Soda Springs to work in his brother's service station. They were married July, 1946 after Bob was discharged from the Navy when WW II ended. Their first seven years were spent in Afton, Wyoming where Bob worked in the gravel business with his brother and later ran the Valleon Hotel. They welcomed three children into their home, Susan, Barbara, and Reid. In 1953 they moved to Rexburg, Idaho, purchased land and built a Sinclair service station and a home. It was a joint effort with Bob working long hours at the station and Jean doing the bookkeeping. In 1962 the family was complete when Daren was born. Jean served in many positions in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints throughout their married life including the Relief Society on Ricks College campus, primary and ward Relief Society positions.
