The following personal account was submitted by Mike Jones of Ardmore, Oklahoma in June of 2006:
Jean Bales was a very dear friend of mine, I first met Jean in Chickasha, Oklahoma in 1966. I also took some art classes with her at OCLA, (Oklahoma College of Liberal Arts) in Chickasha the same year. Jean or Jeanne, as she was known then was an extremely fun person to be with. She had a fantastic personality and was also a very pretty young lady. We kept in touch off and on for over 20 years after becoming friends in 1966.
My wife and I went to one of her art shows in Oklahoma City, in 1983. She gave me one of her prints, "Persimmon Time," and signed and numbered it.
