Jean and I would have such nice conversations when I saw her. Our last one we discussed our favorite ice creams. I will always remember her kindness and her smile. Prayers to Marty and Mary during this time.

So very sad to hear of Jean’s passing. We were member of Melrose Gardens Grace Brethren Church. For years I would go to Jean’s neighbors Hester and Dezo. Jean would come over and talk. We had very good times and long ago she helped me with a dress. May God comfort family at this time. I shared the post with my friend Georgann Weaver her mother was Betty Woll. Prayers for all.
