Jeanne and I spent the weekend together with our daughters, Grace and Alexis, for A&M orientation. She was a pleasure to be around. Great conversation and very fun! Then Jeanne opened her home for my daughter's engagement party a few years later. She was so gracious and delightful. She loved her family and it showed. She will be missed. This world has lost an amazing lady, Cynthia Grimm

I would see Jeanne every now and then at St. Laurence, St. Agnes. and at Magpies. She always had a warm smile and was welcoming towards me even though we hadn't seen each other in some time. I would tell her about my kids and she would listen and give positive comments about them. She was just a joy to be around...a ball of energy in the best way. When I heard of her sudden passing, all I could think about was her smile and happy heart seen though it. Please accept our most sincere condolences and may she be with God now and forever. I can only imagine the terrible void she is leaving in your hearts and souls!! If you need anything, please do not hesitate to call or contact me. With sympathy and love, Doris Mendiola and the rest of the Mendiola's

My deepest condolences to the Klein family; may our merciful Lord carry you through the pain and sorrow of this time. I hope that you can be somehow comforted by the memories that everyone carries in their hearts of the sweet and gentle soul that Jeanne possessed; always joyful and engaging, and always with a kind word that lifted you. She was a special woman and her life was a gift to all who knew her.

Dear Klein Family,
I first met Jean at St Laurence School where my two daughters Berkley and Brooke attended. Berkley was in the same class as Grace. I worked on several volunteer projects with Jean and she was ALWAYS so positive and joyful! She laughed a lot and had such a fantastic relaxed attitude. I really enjoyed being around her. Great energy! I am so very sad for all of you. I know that you have so many friends who are praying for you. I think of Jean as someone that was liked by everyone she met and she brought joy with her everywhere she went.

Sincerely,
Sandi Sullivan

FROM THE FAMILY
