I worked with Jean at the El Dorado School District Office in late sixties until 1975. She was a sweet joyful lady. She let me come to her home in Goodwin Heights on Saturdays and she taught me to crochet. I passed the skill along to my daughter. She made beautiful "flower shirts" and a friend of mine sent me a picture of one she bought and has worn ever since during the last 45 years, still beautiful. She once told me one time not to worry that I cried easily, she said "there is more room on the outside than the inside" . I was blessed to know her. Condolences and God's strength to her family.

Heaven gained an angel with the passing of Jean. Jean was a very close friend to my Mom when they were children, and she was a special friend to me all of my life. She always had a smile, was happy, and fun! I was so happy to see her 100 th Birthday Celebration! May God comfort the family on their loss, but remember all the Joy she gave to so many in her wonderful long life.
