Virginia I. Tabor was born June 30, 1927 to Wendel and Paulene (Karey) Roshau in Killdeer. She grew up and attended country grade school before attending high school in Killdeer. After high school, Virginia followed a young man named David Tabor to Seattle, Wash. While there, she worked at North West Bell Telephone Co. as an operator. David and Jean were married on June 19, 1947 in Seattle. The couple soon returned to Killdeer and have made their home there.

Jean loved spending time with her family and enjoyed the opportunity to bake for them. She enjoyed crocheting and needle work but her passion was gardening. To say she had a, "Green Thumb" was an understatement. David and Jean never returned from a trip without a new plant to add to Virginia's collection, regardless of how they obtained it. She even dried many of the local wild flowers and weeds to put on display.
