Born on May 12, 1913 at Harlan, Iowa, she was the daughter of the Honorable George E. and Ann Adele (Ramsey) Miller. She grew up in Harlan and attended high school in Des Moines where her father was very active politically and served as Speaker of the House of Representatives. After his appointment as United States Marshall Jeanne had the opportunity to travel with her father during his tenure. She was married to H. Dean Lytle on December 18, 1931 at Omaha, Nebraska. To this union three daughters were born: Teri, Carolyn, and Georgia. The family made their home in Persia, Iowa, where they farmed. Jeanne attended secretarial school in Des Moines and worked as medical transcriptionist. She was a lifelong member of the First Congregational Church while living in Harlan and the Eastern Star. Jean moved to Carroll thirty years ago so her daughter Teri could live at New Hope Village where Jeanne also volunteered and became very active.
