I’m setting for Jean’s peak for 5ft6. She really needs a couple of boxes now.

The average guess is utterly ridiculous. Clearly some here haven't bothered to read the description above just they can downgrade her.

You might wanna split peak and current listings, because she's obviously nowhere near 5'6" anymore. This might be the biggest gap between listed height and average guess in this site's history, 5'6" vs 5'4.18", lol. Click Here I can imagine a good chunk of the voters casting 5'3.5" guesses so it brought down the average. She looks around that with you in all honesty.

She did move out of the limelight a few years ago, but of course wasn't 5ft 6 when I met her. By now she might be nearer 5ft 3 range.

5'6 is impossible. 5'4 max maybe even shorter.

5'6" is a fair call for her peak height!

She's never been less than average during her adult life!

Rob did you leave out her current height as an exercise to the readers of celebheights?

I estimate her at a good 5'3.75-5'4
Nik said on 28/Sep/17
She is about 5'4" nowadays.

Looking at the photo I think she's around 5 ft 3 tall nowadays.

Yeah, Rob looks like he's got 5 inches on her, possibly also 4. So 5'4 I'm thinking.

she don't look over 5ft 4 to me now. And all this silliness saying she was a little person!!!

She still looks great!

She looks fairly young to be 79, but has definitely lost a lot of height with age. Hail Queen Bavmorda!
