Dear Gary, Donna and family,

You are fortunate to have had Jeanette in your lives for such a long time. Although we did not know her it sounds as if she lived a rich life if for no other reason the extensive family she contributed to. We are sorry to hear of this passing and hope that you will soon leave your sadness behind and enjoy only warm memories of Jeanette.

I remember calling from New Hampshire to talk to Donna and forgetting that it was Donna’s work day and Mrs Franz was there babysitting and she would answer and chat with me ! I would hear all about what was happening at home ! Always enjoyed our weekly catch up on the phone ! Or talking at our local Fallston post office! She was dear lady - always so kind!

Want to extend my deepest condolences to the entire Franz family.. The Franz’s were one of the first wonderful old school straight and narrow family’s I knew. They raised good men out of those boys they were stewards of. I’m sure the boys are carrying that legacy on. You’re all in my prayers.
