Without a doubt, Jean was one of the finest ladies to ever walk this earth! She was a gentle, soft spoken, caring person who cared deeply for her family and friends. She never had an unkind word to say about anyone and she was loved by all. May she rest in Heaven and be free from all pain. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in her family and her friends.

Jean was one of the sweetest ladies you could have known. I worked with her at Holly Center for many years. She got along with everyone and always did whatever she could to help. Her family was so fortunate to have her for so many years- she will be missed.
