I had the pleasure of working with Jean years ago in the cafeteria at Manasquan High. Then years later, we united again when I was in # 1's Fire Department's Ladies Auxiliary. Jean was a lovely person and a joy to be around. She will be missed by many people. My family and I extend our sincere condolences to her entire family. Sorry not to be able to attend her service on 2-7-2020.

My heartfelt condolences to you and your family. I was very fond of your mom and dad as you well know, even long after dad stopped bowling. May you have peace that they are reunited.

I remember Mrs H from high school and when I was friends with Terry. She always had tuna sandwiches & Ruffles for Terry and I when we were at her house. It sounds like Mr & Mrs H were blessed with a long, loving, happy life with their large family! Peace to all.

Rest in peace Aunt Jean. There are so many memories dating back to when I was just a tot. My fondest memory is always stopping by to get some Charlie Chips. I used to think you guys were so rich because you always had that big tub of chips. From swimming in your pool, to stopping by unannounced just because I would want to say hi, you were always so welcoming. You will be missed by your family and extended family, but we can all rest assured that you are now reunited with Uncle Bill, where you always wanted to be. God Speed Aunt Jean. Please give my mom, pop pop, and nana a huge hug and kiss from me.
