I can't begin to express how much I will miss Jean. She was always a bright spot in our day and could always make us laugh.
Often we shared our thoughts on life and the universe. Not only was she a dear and trusted friend she named and was godmother to our Traditions Flowers cat, Sooty.
I am so blessed to have known her and had her as a part of my life and circle of friends.

This sweet lady who added meaning to the word "lady'. I loved to hear her read the scriptures. She was an excellent hostess. Prayers for the family that now has an empty spot in their lives.
