Dear Rochelle & Family, We will always remember your Mother coming over to our house to congratulate us on the birth of our daughter, Jackie. She was so happy for us. What a great woman your mother was; always looking out for & taking care of others. She will be missed. I'm sure she will look over our Maple Ave. from above. Take good care of yourselves during this sad time. The Hanson Family

Remembering today our dear next-door neighbor Jeannetter Crowell, called home to God this week. She was the first friendly face to welcome us to Fair Haven many years ago, and we can't imagine our neighborhood without her. When I started working as the NJ child advocate, she came to my swearing-in, gave me a big hug and whispered in my ear, "stay close to Jesus." I'd like to think that's her walk now, and one so richly deserved. Rest in peace sweet lady - we will miss you.

Rochelle, I remember when you delivered the message at my dad's funeral service long ago. You said "May comfort and peace be with his family during this tremendously difficult time". Today I pray this for you- your family is in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless

As a neighbor, we were blessed by Mrs. Crowell's presence in the later part of her life. She always had a kind word, and especially enjoyed being surrounded by children, mine included. It was almost like having a surrogate "Grandma" just across the street! Her pride and energy were strong to her last days, where she could be found always tending to her home. Our town, and our family, have lost a great friend. Peace- The Brenner's
