Whether Jean was in her office or in the factory at Westinghouse, she was always a fun person - and even at UGA ball games. May God bless you and your family, Jimmy

Jimmy, I was saddened to hear of Jean's passing as I remember so vividly the many years working together at Westinghouse. It's been many years ago, but I believe my late husband, Jim Mills, and I enjoyed some Saturday nights dancing with you and Jean and other Westinhouse folks. Fun memories. You have my sympathy at this sad time. Best regards to you, Teresa (Mills) Hembree

Dear Jimmy and Family, I just heard of Jean's passing. So sorry for your loss. I have many memories of her from Westinghouse. My last memory of her was at a "get together" at my friends house after Don and I had moved away from Athens. It was so good to see her then. She was a unique, fun person to be around. Don and Linda Ristuccia

Jimmy, I signed the guestbook on the ABH website, then found the photo array on the funeral home site. Thanks so much to you and Carolyn for sharing these!! I copied the one of Jean in the payroll office and in the red fleece to my computer. I will look at these often. God Bless.
