We will miss Jean very much, she used to babysit and watch us for years from toddlers to adolescents, she was always kind and had a huge heart, could stop tears with her hugs and make you feel better with her warm smile. We love and miss you Jean!

There are so many beautiful memories that I have of my friendship with Jeannie. She loved her family and friends, AND inspired so many she didnt know in her daily life/travels. She shared so many great memories of her own with me. She was very strong and so funny. We helped each other in times of need (lending a shoulder or ear), and overall FRIENDSHIP was our main connection! I miss you dearly, Jeannie~BFFs forever and ever!

I am so blessed to have Jean and her family play a huge part of our lives. Jean was our bonus grandmother who nurtured and kept us company when our parents worked. She was a kind, loving individual who opened her heart and home to everyone. I have fond memories of her cooking and her laughter. She will always hold a special place in my heart. I am so grateful to have been given the opportunity to know her. Love you always, Lisa Finley (Otti->The Cinderella Way Family)

Such a special lady! I feel privileged to have been able to call her Mom, and did from the day I was introduced to her by her daughter and my wife Sheri.
One of the many precious memories was when I was stationed in board the USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN. When the ship pulled into San Diego Mom and her great friend Sharon wanted to come for a tour of the mighty aircraft carrier. As they crossed the brow, Mom not all that happy with the height, but she had a fresh Lemon Meringue Pie for me!
She will always be missed and never forgotten in my heart.

To another one of the “Special Cinderella Way” family, Jean was one of the most caring individuals that I knew, her presence and kids were the cornerstone of our block! She was the “adopted” Mom to my children, helping share her interests and love of crafts, cooking and the love of all! Thank you Jean, for being part of our lives, we are truly enriched by the love you shared, for that we are all thankful. Until we meet again, I will carry you in my heart and memories. Love you, Diane Otti

Jean was like a grandmother to my sister and brother and I. She watched over us frequently when we all lived on Cinderella Way and I’m so thankful to have spent time with her while growing up.
She was one of the most kind and giving people you’ll ever met. I remember picking lemons in her trees during the summer and her remarkable laugh and smile. You will be missed, Jean. I will love ❤️ you always.
