Jon and family, so sorry to hear about Jean. She was such a special person. So many wonderful memories of her and your mom and dad. Praying God will give you the comfort you need during this difficult time. Doris Stewart and family

Jean was a wonderful woman and so full of life during her earlier years. Always ready to help somebody. She and my sister Dot Pleasant, her cousin, was very close. During the time my sister was going through so much with her chronic COPD, Jean would always call 2 or 3 times a day just to talk to her and go by to see her. We will all miss Jean and especially her brother John and the rest of the family. She will always be in our hearts and minds. Until we meet again Jean may you RIP free from all your worries and pains. Fly like the butterfly you was.
