I don't think I ever saw Jean when she was not smiling. Her brother Gerald seemed to get an even bigger smile out of her when he would be teasing her about who was younger. Gerald always insisted *he* was younger than Jean!
Jean will be missed at the Conard reunions! I am grateful that she was in the photo taken at the 100th year Conard Reunion in 2017.

Our hearts are with you all at this time.

Barb, Connie, David and Donna, Heartfelt Condolences to you. Aunt Jean was a wonderful lady and will sadly be missed.
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush, I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.
From: Christine, Clarice, Diane and Jim Cramer

Deepest sympathies on the loss of Erma. I still remember being welcomed into her home for those middle school sleepovers. Donna, your mom always had an ear ready to listen to us!

Jean was a very special Aunt. I loved her and Uncle Dalton almost as much as my own parents. I remember her sweet corn field and how she shared with everyone. I remember the rabbits she raised , not sure why, but she gave one to my kids. I remember her sweet tea, cherry yum yum, chocolate cake, and all the wonderful food she would bring to family gatherings. I never heard her complain, she was very happy with her children, her husband, and loved the home that had been in and out of the Horn family for years. I’m sure she has rejoined her family above and is once again happy to be free of her earthly bounds. I loved her so much and so happy that she was a part of my life. To her family, I wish you peace.

Praying for your family at this sad time. I have many good memories of visiting with Jean over the years. The Conard and Horn families have been friends and neighbors for a very long time and we always had a very happy time as we shared memories face to face or over that old CB radio. Thanks for being great friends. May God comfort you now and the days ahead. Love Brenda Drury Conard.
