Jeannie (Culbertson) Essex will always be remembered by our family as the youngest member of the Culbertson Family, our neighbors. She was sweet as can be, at 3 or 4 year old. Her and my younger sister befriended each other. She looked so much like the youngest of the daughters in "Little House on the Praire". Clearly Jeanne's life of compassion is a testament of the gift she was to so many. Thanking God for Jeanne, may He sustain her family with His never ending Love.
