When I think of lovely and very industrious Jean, too many wonderful traits to list come to mind and heart. As neighbors for close to 50 years, we witnessed her tremendous patience and enthusiasm with and for her sizable and delightful, family; we shared in block events; we witnessed her great endorsement of social work, and in general felt her to be one lovely, talented person whom we shall always miss. A sweet poem occurred to me to comfort her family and all of us who will miss her. It is:
Those we love don't go away;
They walk beside us every day.
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved,still missed. and always near."
