Not sure what to say?

I taught with Jeanne at Yankeetown School. She was a lovely person and I enjoyed working with her and knowing her. I'll always remember Jeanne and her interest and care for the children she taught. It was indeed my pleasure to know her.

My husband, Tom, and I am so sorry for your loss. I know how much she loved and treasured all of you.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss Barry. Your mom was exactly the same age as me. I was 87 in September. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

So sorry for your loss.

Jeanne was such a kind and gentle soul. Her smile would light up a room. Her Old North family will miss her so much, could always count on her to help me with sandwiches for our UMW events. She is now dancing with Bob and having a great reunion! May the Lord wrap her family and friends in his loving arms today, tomorrow and always.

She was a sweet lady... We were neighbors when her and Bob lived in Springhaven. When we moved in she greeted us with a smile and a cake. R.I.P Mrs. Gerst.

Such a kind and gentle lady, I have great memories of Miss Jeannie and Mr. Bob playing bridge upstairs with the Lands and Smiths at our house on many a Saturday night. What a fun loving group of people. She was loved by many and will be missed.

I didn't know Jeanne well but I know a quality person when I meet her. She was always so nice to everyone. Really sorry that she is gone.

I taught with a Jeanne at Castle Elementary. She was a lovely, kind lady who loved her family. I'm sorry for your family's loss. I know she will be greatly missed.

I am so sorry for your loss. Jeanne was such a lovely person. At Old North UMC she governed the donut and coffee duties on Sunday morning. People take their donuts and coffee serious. Just over a week ago she was filling in for someone who was on vacation and I had the chance to visit with her in the kitchen. Such a beautiful lady and wonderful spirit. She will be sadly missed by the Old North Family for certain.
