Jean was a precious person. I didn't know her well, but loved to visit her because she was always so easy to talk to and had such a good sense of humor. She was kind-hearted and always had nice things to say about others.

Jean has been a mentor for me for most of my life. The stories she shared and outlook on things helped me understand parts of my life. She will be missed, but will always be remembered.
