Not sure what to say?

Dr. Bartoo help me get in north Olmsted school in 1979. I will miss her.

One of Jean's biggest fans

Jean was my Principal at Spruce School when it first opened. I was so disappointed when I was elevated to Sixth Grade that "Mrs. Bartoo" would be on leave to finish her doctorate. But our shared email messages over the years about her travels, our shared friendship with the Lauvers, and her kindness to my mother throughout her career will be cherished in my heart forever. Thank you, Dr. Bartoo, Jean, for your inspiration and your smile.

Aunt Jean you were a strong wild woman who could accomplish anything. You lived your life on your own terms and left it the same way. I will never forget all the quality's that made you you and inspired me at a young age. Thank you for all the thanksgiving dinners and wonderful company. You are loved and missed by many. Safe journey on your next big adventure!

Watching from Above

Aunt Jean, Thank you so much for having such a positive impact on my life and showing me just what it means to live life with a love of travel and education. And thank you for always telling me just how much my Life had purpose and I could be anything I set my mind to becoming. And showing Lena and I the correct way to putt those golf I will always remember you and Ed and light a candle for you at Thanksgiving time.
God Speed to you sweet Aunt Jeanie Joe.

We all enjoyed working with Jean in many capacities. She was dedicated to the children of the North Olmsted Schools, and assisted them in so many ways as both a teacher and school administrator. We loved her!!

There was no one quite like Aunt Jean! It was always so fun to see her. She had so many stories to share. I remember as a small child visiting her house--she was the first person I knew to have a computer at home. I wonder how many games of Frogger I played in that back room? And her fun! I remember all the trinkets in her house from the foreign countries. She was just so neat. I'm still not quite sure how she was related to me, but I'm glad she was our Aunt Jean. She was a loved...

She was a very extraordinary woman with a love of life that was evident in everything she did. We enjoyed so many wonderful times with her and Ed and will miss her very much. Our love and prayers are with you. Sean & Darla

I got to meet and talk to Jean several times at the International Women's Air & Space Museum, where she had donated items from her days at Penn Central. She always came to the museum wearing her IWASM shirt and attended many museum events. She will be missed, but we are so glad to have heard her stories. What a wonderful human being.
