Mary Jeanne has been a force in my life for over 20years. She has been with me on my faith journey and referred to herself as my "Tn Mom". The only word to describe Mary Jeanne is JOY, her joyful spirit, the twinkle in her eyes and her contagious smile. She meant so much to me and I loved her so.....we also share the same middle name.....

Mary Jeanne has been a force in my life for over 20 years. She has been with me on my faith journey and has referred to herself as my "Tn Mom" thru the years. We have shared many wonderful times together at Andrew Price UMC and St John's Lutheran Church. The only way I can describe Mary Jeanne is JOY.....she was the most joyful person with that little twinkle in her eyes and her contagious smile.....I was so blessed to have her in my life and loved her so.
