I will always remember this dear woman. Her kindness reached across the country when I was in college and across the ocean while I served a mission miles away from home. She looked out for me, and I will always appreciate that kindness and love. You will be greatly missed.

Such happy memories of my beautiful Aunty Jean. Her visits to us in England always fun. She was loved by us all and introduced me, at a very early age, to the delights of Milk Duds and Baby Ruth. Rest in peace my darling Aunty. Love as always your niece Barb and family.

In memory of my special Auntie Jean who I am named after. So sad that at this time I am unable to travel to attend her funeral from England. She will be fondly remembered by myself and my husband Ernie and our family .Jean was a brilliant Aunt and we always looked forward to her visits to see us and for us to visit her and the family in the US. Jean was a caring , compassionate and kind person who never had a bad word for anyone, I will miss her but understand that this was her time to depart this world and be reunited with her sisters and her Mum and Dad,
God Bless Auntie Jean from your loving niece and namesake Jean xxx
