Jean Rose (Metcalf) Allison, age 89, of Biddle passed away on April 5, 2018 at the St. Vincent Hospital in Billings, Montana with her family by her side.
Jean was born October 25, 1928 in Barnesville, Minnesota to Joe and Hilda Metcalf. She grew up and went to school in a couple different places in North Dakota. She married Howard Allison in Glendive, Montana on November 26, 1946. After they were married they moved to their ranch near Biddle where they ranched and raised their two sons, Jon and Bill. She also worked at the Biddle Store several years and then became the Biddle Postmistress in 1971 and retired from that in 1992.
Jean was active in the Biddle Home Demo Club, VFW Auxiliary and the Retired Postmasters. Jean enjoyed helping her sons in 4-H, sewing for her family, gardening and in later years took up quilting.
