Radell Winton was born July 14, 1934, in Dallas, Texas, the first of two children of Loyd Franklin Winton and Irma Lee English Winton. When she was six weeks old, in the midst of the Great Depression, the family moved to Borger, Texas, where her father had secured a job, and they made their home there for 20 years. Radell graduated from Borger High School in 1952. She then attended college at Abilene, Texas.
On August 18, 1956, she married Gary Lee Weisen in Abilene. To that union were born two daughters, Carole and Lorinda. The couple separated in early 1962, and Radell and her daughters moved to Duncan, where her parents had moved a few years earlier. On April 6, 1962, she was employed by Halliburton Services and spent the next 37 years with the company, beginning as a Stenographer and working her way up through several secretarial grades to Senior Secretary when she became Department Secretary in the Credit Department. There she worked for four consecutive Credit Managers. In 1992 the entire Credit Department was transferred to Houston, Texas, where she continued as Department Secretary. In April, 1999, she retired after 37 years of employment with Halliburton and moved back to Duncan where her two daughters lived.
On June 10, 2000, Radell married Robert Murray Jean in Duncan. After their marriage, they lived in Jay, Florida for three years while Robert's young son completed high school. Then they returned to live in Duncan for the past 17 years.
Radell had been a member of Eastside Church of Christ in Duncan since 2003, of Northside Church of Christ in Duncan from 1962 to 1992, and of several other congregations of the Church of Christ during residencies in other cities, having been baptized at age 12 in Borger, Texas.
