Aunt Jean was such a kind woman and I always thought of her as faithfully devoted to her family, especially Uncle Bill. She was a special part of our family and I will cherish my memories of her. I'm thinking of Michael, Randy, Bob, John and Ginger and praying for strength in the days to come.

Mike, Randy, Bobby and Johnny:

Your mother was always such a kind lady. There were so many times when we were young and we deserved to be punished for things we did but your mother was always understanding and calm. I’m sorry to hear of her passing.

I have fond memories of working for several years at Habersham Furniture when my dear Aunt Jean was an artist there!

It was such a joy and privilege to be able to spend some time getting to know her better!

Jean was such a lovely, smart, kind and talented lady, with a great personality, great sense of humor, and a beautiful smile!

There are many memories as we were High School class mates. I am so sorry that another strong tree has fallen in the course of life. Class of 1951 was very special in the course of time. God bless. Wes Annas at palm Beach Gardens, FL.
