Thank you Aunt Jeanne for always being there for everyone with your beautiful smile and wise words of wisdom. You taught me office skills at "the Lab" after school at Mattison Ave. I couldb not wait to be done school and come and help you al9ng with Rosemary and Ann! And Sundays were the best! I would start asking Mom so early in the morning, " what time can,I call Aunt Jean???" I had to wait until 11am to call and I would spend the day with you cooking, talking and sneaking out every so,often to drive the " Coot"! I love you.
I really miss my grandmother. She was rock of the family and keep us together. She was great person and was there for everything. I’m glad we saw her on my last birthday.
Jeanne was a very kind, giving, gentle and loving person. Always willing to help others. She will be missed.
