Jeanne would light up a room when she entered and her smile was a true warm greeting wherever she went. We will miss her and her time here will always be remembered by all.

Our love to you Tim and the family.

Jon and I both knew and loved Jeanne. I shared many birthday lunches with Jeanne compliments of Donna Erdman. We shared the same birth day June 15. I was born 8 years earlier than Jeanne and my middle name is Jean. We were both June brides as our day was June 12, 1967 and of course she and Tim were June 17 a few years later. Our granddaughter was born June 17 a few years after their wedding date. Jeanne was a wonderful woman that she loved her home and family, friend and Spiritual Community.. Jon knew her from golf and fishing. She was one to bring and send great care packages while Jon was in Alaska and even cooked while she was there on a trip. Jeanne left a great legacy of love, kindness and generosity for her family and friends. Tim, their son, daughter in law, grandchildren, and great grandchildren will continue to feel her loving influence in their lives. She is earth’s loss and Heaven’s Gain.

Our deepest sympathy to Tim their son and all Jeanne’s family.

I remember Jeanne more as a sister than a cousin. As young children, our families visited a lot, not just on holidays. On Christmas Day we would get into the car and go to Astoria to visit our Aunt Marion, Uncle John, Jeanne, Peter & Richard. Jeanne would show me her gifts & I would show her the "best" of mine. We would go into her bedroom and play with our Ginny Dolls. As we got older, we would play with our Barbie Dolls together. My Mom made outfits for the Barbie Dolls, and Jeanne & I would play for hours dressing our dolls and changing the outfits. Aunt Marion & Jeanne would visit us too. In the Springtime, Jeanne & I would go out to play in the back yard and "climb" on the "Snowball Bush" or sniff the peonies.

I will remember Jeanne's beautiful, happy and loving spirit. She brightened everything around her and will be dearly missed. She will always live in a place in my heart. R.I.P. sweet cousin.

My heartfelt condolences to Tim, Steven & family.

I remember Jeannie as always being energized and positive. She lived her life with passion for her husband, her son and her family. Certainly her faith drove her choices. She is missed by me and those who knew her but her rest is now complete. My prayers & condolences to her family and may her faith be a comfort to each of you.
