Jean was and is a perfect sister in every
way. i would always call her the family
chef - she was a great cook. She collected and used cook books, hope heaven has lots of pots and pans. Jean had a way of washing the dishes and not
stacking them up for later. Everyone will miss her great chicken dressing.
Sandra and Clyde,she misses you too.

Clyde and Sandra, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Jean was my Kindergarten Aide at Apison Elementary School in 1974. She was a dear friend and much needed help to me as a first time teacher. She was a dear person.
