I've known Jean for years and years. Although we didn't know each other well, we got along really well over the last few years. I particularly appreciate the connection and love she gave my Father. I'm eternally grateful for Jean. You will be missed! Love and support to Joni & Jimmy & Johnathan and her other grandkids and friends. Joni/Jimmy - If you all need anything, please let me know!

So very saddened to hear of Jean's passing and for your family's loss. I met Jean in a Disney group I belong to and we actually met up one year in Walt Disney World. She was a kind and sweet person! I pray your memories and the love you share will carry you through this difficult time.

So sorry for the family’s loss.
I am part of a Disney group that Jean was a member of. I had the privilege of meeting and spending time with Jean at Walt Disney World. She was such a nice, sweet lady.
Jean now you can visit Disney any time you want to!
