Aunt Jean was an amazing person, always smiling and helpful to our family. She and Uncle Henry visited us often and joined us for summer picnics and family celebrations. We had many special times, too numerous to list.
Since we moved to California we kept in close contact by mail and through phone conversations. Aunt Jean always had plenty to say and had strong opinions about life, health remedies and, of course, politics. Her convictions and knowledge entertained us every time we called. We loved conversing with her and will miss those phone calls greatly!
Aunt Jean will be in our hearts and prayers forever.

Jean, my cousin, my Godmother. I have nothing but happy memories of Jean. We grew up in the same two family house. She downstairs with my aunt and uncle , me upstairs with my family.
She was like a big sister! She was always a part of my life. Even though we now lived cross the country from each other, we talked often on the phone, and those calls lasted forever. I last saw her in the summer of 2015. She was as vibrant as ever. I shall remember her always as young at heart. I will miss her so very much. I know she rests in the arms of the angels!
