There are many special thoughts and memories of Jean. She was very special. She would never shy away from driving a tractor long hours in the heat or volunteer to run get supplies Darrell needed for his work. Nor to help anyone. I’m proud to be a relative of such a wonderful woman. She was kind with at times a mildly high spirited side. My thoughts go to Darrell, Leroy and the rest of the family. May your special memories help each of you during this time.

My Aunt Jean is truly the definition of "Aunt" and a Proverbs 31 woman. She loved me and thought of me my whole life. She treated me like I was her own. I already miss her so much. Darrell - I am so sorry I am not going to be with you through this. Just know that my heart is with you. I will see you as soon as I can. I love you. Rhonda
