I am just now hearing of Jean’s passing. When I was just a teenage she and I worked at the same dress shop for a while. She was always so kind and sweet to me and with a quick whit that would keep us all in stitches. As life goes we feel out of you h but Jean made an impression on my heart that I’ve never forgotten.

Dear Aunt Jean, I will truly miss the special moments that you and I shared. Looking over all the old pictures of the past. All the stories that went along with those pictures. I know that you are in a better place and no longer suffering. I know you are now in peace. Love your niece Judy Lujan..

It has been a pleasure to know Jean for these past seventeen years. She was truly a bright light wherever she went. I will never forget the twinkle in her eyes and her beautiful smile.
