What an incredibly positive and cheerful presence Jean was. She had the brightest smile and was so welcoming to everyone. I was lucky enough to attend a few Wednesday outings with my mom, Jean and Yvonne. What a lovely time and special friendship those ladies had. She will be so missed.

Thinking of all of you,
Patricia, Anna and Eric
