Jean offered to sew my wedding dress for me in 1973. She was the aunt of my husband to be. I was barely 18 years old and did not have two nickels to rub together. We had several consultations and fittings together during which time we came to know each other. She always had a smile and a laugh. Her sewing skills were extraordinary. I loved the experience and the dress turned out beautifully. I will always remember her as a kind, generous and thoughtful person.
