Dear Ladies,

I worked with Jean at St. V's at the start of my career. In fact Jean succeeded me as Benefits Administrator.I met Penny back then. Jean took me under her wing since I was a young professional, working in a new city. She told me she was my "work mother". I fondly remember her laugh, her insights into people, and the caring she brought to the employees at St. V's. She was a very proud woman, proud of you, proud of employees, and she insisted that all of them conduct themselves with respect and courtesy. I have thought of her often through the years. I know you will retain wonderful memories of your mother. Take care.

Dear Penny, Pam and Paula: I have met only Penny and your dear mother, Jean. I also met your aunt Constance Chester in 1994, because I was then one of the home health aids from the Worcester VNA who went to help her, just as your own mother helped so many.

I came to All Saints Church in the beginning of 1995. I remember Jean fondly. She had a friendly and welcoming way about her. By the time I met her, she was retired, but I can imagine her caring for patients throughout the years with kindness and professionalism.

I can only imagine how proud she was of all of you, and how much joy she experienced in all the many grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

I pray for the healing you need as you all say "goodbye for now." Please be good to yourselves and each other, as this will be a tender time. I honor and appreciate your beautiful mother, Jean Storms Hawley.

Sincerely, Celia Demers

She was kind and impeccably dressed. When she wore a uniform it was crisp and bright white. Her posture was perfect. If there was a pageant for nurses, she would have won!

Im glad to read that she had a long life and a loving family.

Wish I could be in Massachusetts to bid her farewell but it's not possible at this time, so I say RIP Aunt Jean. Maybe you could give my mom Thelma a big squeeze. Glad your surrounded by others who love you as well.
