Aunt Jean left planet earth after giving 72 years of her love, care and compassion to countless people throughout her life. Jean was a strong, respectful, confident, inquisitive and an intelligent lady. Family, friends, community, work ethics and doing good for all were Jean's few ongoing compassions. A true heart with a big smile and meant what she said. One of those people who you interacted with occasionally but they enrich your life forever. Jean left too soon - she will be missed dearly.
