When I think of Mrs. Jean, several things come to my mind. Homemade sweets and treats from her "sugar cart" (my fav was her pumpkin bread). How delightful she was when she'd sit in as one of the children during the "Children's Moment" at the church! I think fondly of Mrs. Jean's warm hugs. I remember that Mrs. Jean would tell me, every Sunday, how much she enjoyed my piano playing and singing! Rest in peace sweet Mrs. Jean. To you Beth, and your family, I offer my condolences and prayers.

From the first time she visited our church, she made me laugh. I have so many memories of her and will keep her in my heart. Because I loved her chocolate cake and she loved my peanut butter pie, we had a tradition of trading them whenever we got together. I will sure miss that cake! She was a precious friend.

The Todd family has always had a very big piece of my heart, and I know how much you must be hurting right now, and my heart is hurting with you. When I was grieving my father's death a year ago, I was told that the death of a loved one is the return of a treasure which God has only lent us. These words brought me peace, as I hope they bring you peace, because we know that Jean is home with Jesus, enjoying her eternal reward. I pray that God blesses you with strength and health for the coming time. My deepest sympathy and love. - Marilyn Dawlett and family

Will miss one of my best blessings from the Lord. Jean had special ideas and was helpful in so many ways. What I learned from her I'll never forget. I have thanked the Lord daily for sending her into my life. I am looking forward to seeing her when I get there. I know she's got plans for us.

Jeanie came to my mother's funeral last year. It was great to see her. She was always so very kind to me. Though we spent little time together during my 63 years, I have nothing but great memories of those times. Peace to you Jeanie. Love to you and yours.
