Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.

I remember my Mother sending me down to Jean's house with a bouquet of white flowers. It was Jean's birthday and it was also mine. I had no idea then that she and I would be close for the next 67 years.
and that she would become one of the most important people in my life. Jean lead a life that gave so much joy to the lives of those she touched. As the years went by and my siblings, Bill, Kathie, David & Janice were born, her heart just grew to include the whole family. She and My Mother, Glenna were best friends for over 50 years. They were two playful girlfriends. Jean and Mom had many coincidences over the years including having two daughters one day apart, and then a son and my sister just a few days apart. Jean loved her family dearly. Over the years she told me many stories and details of their lives. She was very proud of the people they became. She loved with a big heart. Her family and ours. She could never really understand why we were so crazy about her. That's because she was just being this wonderful fun, caring, person that she had always been. She didn't know any other way to be. She rejoiced in our celebrations and walked with us when there were hardships and sadness. One very sad time for her was when she lost her dear son, Steve and one month before that, she lost her dear friend, my mother. She taught me about grieving with those losses. She wanted to experience the full grieving process, give it the time and attention and tears that were necessary. They were important people to her and she didn't want to escape the hard part. What courage. That was truly amazing. Jean showed me a way of living that means something. That inspires me in my life to take life on life's terms and not complain... just keep on doing the next right thing. Live with an open heart. I loved to be around her. Being with her was pure joy. I treasure those times. I could never ever forget her. She showed me how to live a good life in the best of times and the worst of times, and it is in the worst of times that shows a persons true humility and tenacity. I am forever grateful to have loved and been loved by this wonderful woman. I am sad for all of Jean's family and friends who will miss her so, and I am comforted knowing that although she didn't want to leave us, she was ready to go. She was right with her Lord.

With love and gratitude to be "touched by an angel", Anne Perkins Ralston

Love and hugs to the entire Summers family for your sad loss. I will miss this wonderful lady so much.

Jean was everything. Like a second Mom to me and all my brothers and sisters. She loved her family so much and made all of us feel like family too. Jean made life better.
Her sense of humor, infectious smile and laughter will never be forgotten. Her compassion and thoughtfulness towards others a constant.

My hope is that Jean is laughing and hugging all of her dear family and friends who have gone before her. Anyone who knew Jean was lucky. I sure was.

With love and sympathy,
Janice Perkins Davis
