Jean was truly an example of Christian charity and kindness. Anyone who helped her at bingo would receive a beautiful smile and a warm word of thanks.

Dear Jan and Jeff, so deeply sorry to hear about your Mom's passing. She was always a part of our lives as far back as I can remember. We grew up with her and your entire family. She was always a sweet, caring person. And I feel blessed to have been able to visit her along with dad a few years ago. A very special reunion! My thoughts and prayers are with your entire family. Love, Jan
