To the Family & Friends of Jeanne: Honestly, I DO know her last name, & how to spell it! On my previous condolence message, I somehow managed to make a typo, & spelled her last name incorrectly! To Everybody Concerned, I do indeed know that her last name was spelled Shinn, & I apologize for looking like a real idiot!!
REQUIESAT IN PACE, Jeanne Shinn!! We Shall Truly Miss You!!

Jeanne was so dear to me - a cousin, an ally, a Christian sister, a GMA leader. She stood for me and with me in some tough times - I am grateful for that! Great comfort comes in knowing she is in Heaven, in a new strong body, and reunited with Kenneth and Michael as well as the rest of our families. God bless you Sherri, and your family.

Jeanne was one of the sweetest ladies I have ever met. I met her many years ago when my husband and I delivered Meals on Wheels to her. We've been dear friends ever since. Jeanne has always had a very kind heart; and a beautiful smile. She will be missed.

I never got to meet Jeanne personally, but I did indeed "know" her! I am so very sorry to see that Jeanne has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. She will be sitting amongst the many animals she knew over the years that have gone on before her!! She did so much for the 4-legged children in her life, & she was a tireless worker to be a spokesperson for those who cannot speak for themselves ... of the 4-legged kind!! God Bless Jeanne, & Prayers & condolences being sent for her entire family!! REQUIESAT IN PACE, Jeanne Shimm!

I was so honored to get to know Jeanne thru my animal rescue stuff and became quite good friends over so many years. She truly is one special soul and so many in the rescue world will miss her so much. She always knew exactly what to say to me when I was down to help pick me back up.... I'll never forget that. It was an honor and a pleasure to call Jeanne my dear friend. I was hoping someday we could meet but God has other plans. My heartfelt healing prayers to all her family and friends. Rest in sweet peace now my friend and someday we shall meet up there in a much better place. I love you... always!

I am so honored to have known this wonderful woman as a child growing up in the Baptist Church in Bandera Texas. I honestly believe she is the reason I have God in my life and I have a relationship with the Lord. I know she is now in the house the Lord has prepared for her. God Bless you and her family. She was a great person God sent to teach us the way. I will never forget her.
