    You have been a part of our family for so many years and we have really loved your presence, your sense of humor and your chocolate chip cookies. We have enjoyed your trips with us to Pittsburgh to see Kristi and your great grandchildren. You will be sorely missed!!

    I am so grateful to have had you as such a big part of my life. You and Grandpa were my rock in an otherwise pretty rocky youth and your lives were truly a model of love and stability for me to mold my own family life after.

    Making oatmeal bread with you and watching the firefighters put out the garden fire while we ate lunch are my fondest memories. Every time I do my laundry, I think of you and how you taught me to ALWAYS shake the wrinkles out before putting clothes into the dryer. I do a lot of laundry, Grandma Jean, so I think of you a LOT!

    I am grateful for your life and just as grateful that you can finally be with Grandpa again. Please send him my love, I miss you both so much.

    Our sincere symapthy to Jean’s family. As a member of the Telephone Pioneers, Jean made and donated many hug-a-bears for our pediatric patients, which brought comfort to many children over the years. She was a dedicated volunteer and will be missed by many.

    My sincere condolences to Jeans family. She was a kind and wonderful person. We were room mates in Washington DC for Continental Congress. I remember each night before we went to bed we each called or recieved a call from our husbands. Then we would chat half the night like a couple of teenagers.

    I have known you for over 40 years as a friend and Eastern Star Sister. You and Harry so loved the Order of the Eastern Star and dedicated yourselves and your talents to the organization and its members…you for well over 50 years. I will never forget all the fun times we spent together. We have missed you so much the past few years and hope you and Harry are now together in his Mansion.
