  1. To your wonderful family:
    God Bless you all and leave your hearts open to the love Jean shared with each of you. We enjoyed her company at Tom and Carols throughout the years when we were together. Her life was full. She is certainly meeting Our Lord, face to face.

  2. I will remember my Aunt Jean with love. While I wasn’t able to see her often, when I did it was always wonderful to get her hugs and feel her warm spirit. There are so many pictures of her, Uncle Glen, Uncle Pat, Aunt Judy and my parents Don and Lorraine. Beautiful memories for our family to cherish. Send our love and condolences to the family.
