Jack, Jackie and Nicole, relatives and friends

Besides being a great wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sibling, cousin, aunt, friend and anyone I may of missed mentioning, Jeanne was a wonderful person who will be sorely missed by those whose life she touched.

She leaves behind a legacy that I for one will miss so very, very much. She wore so many hats and represented what is good in this world. I am blessed to have met her on my own journey through life.

I know in the coming days, months and years my memories of hers will manifest or appear and remind me of her kindness, joy and humor. I will laugh, cry happy tears and reflect when these memories come. I hope I can pass along some of what I learned from her and be that person to others and act in a similar fashion.

Rest and be at peace to all she came in contact with. Godspeed, Jeanne.

Jeanne , you will be truly missed. Your love and caring for anyone you came in contact with or put at ease was one of your most wonderful gifts. I was scared when I went to my first EA meeting and you sensed this and you bent over backwards to make me feel welcome. You made me a better person and that is a gift I will thank you for for the rest of my days. You loved your family so much and were so proud of each member and would often share bits and pieces of your life. We are all so much better for knowing and loving Jeanne. Thank you for teaching me how to live a good life. Sincere condolences to your family who you loved so much. I will cherish you. Annie Purvis

I will miss you so very much! I will forever treasure our friendship and all the special times we shared.

We had so much fun enjoying tea luncheons at The War Memorial and lunch at the Ford Estate. What wonderful memories I will hold in my heart forever- all the conversations and laughs.

I will miss your inquisitive nature of always wanting to know the history, origins and backstory of things.

I thank God for the gift of you and your friendship.

With love, Denise

You always had a smile and made the best of the situation even when you were not feeling well. Your strength in always trying to move forward was an inspiration to me. Goodbye Jeanne.
