Jean has been family to us for the past 19 years. Living next door to her has been a blessing to me and my children. We will bake brownies in your memory, with chocolate chips just as you like. RIP my friend

Dear Jean was my college roommate 64 years ago. We have been friends ever since. She was so easy to love and admire for her loyalty, generosity, and humor. I'm going to miss you like crazy, Jean.

I grew up just down the street from Jean, and my brother and I both have very dear memories of her. She was always there to provide support, be a shoulder to cry on, or share in a joy. She was a wonderful person who enriched the lives of many.

Jean was like a second mother to me. I loved her so much. I had sent her an email last week but never heard back from her. She will always be in my heart. I love you Jean. May you Rest In Peace.
