Not sure what to say?

This was a grand lady! She mentored me even when she didn’t know. I loved her very much for the kindness she gave me when I was visiting Cindy. I am sad that I didn’t get to tell her how much I admired her. I moved to Texas to live with my grandparents in 1971 and never saw her after that. Memories of her were cherished and helped me as a mother when I had my son in 1981. Cindy was the best friend I ever had growing up. I know she will be greatly missed.

Fly high, and soar with love, for you have mine. Let this day not be the day that we are apart, but the day we finally be together forever. I will always remember your smile, and you can always look down on me, and I will know theres your light to light my path. May my love light your path to Heaven, and your after glow

Jean is the last of our neighborhood-St Lawrence parents. Every morning, it was Bongens or Drysdales driving all of us Snyders, Bongens and Drysdales to St Lawrence School. What a car full. It could never be done like that now. The last time I saw jean was at Charlies funeral. I wish Id gotten over to the house after that for a visit. She was always so sweet. Our sympathies to Debbie, Dan and Cindy. A sad loss.

A wonderful lady i had a chance to no and work for miss. You both

So sorry to hear of Jean's passing she was a great friend to my mom, Madeline Kendrick Pendleton. They both went to St. Francis high school and every time my mom would come to visit me here in Lafayette, your mom would come and pick her up and they would go to lunch with other class mates. I will be forever grateful for her kindness. Praying for her soul.

dan and family, so sorry to see your mother's passing. prayers for you and your family.

I'm sorry to hear of Jeans passing. She was always fun and great to be around. I have many great memories of Jean when our husbands both worked at Fauber's. She will be greatly missed.
