I'm so sorry to hear of Jean's passing. I remember her (and her entire family) fondly from when I was younger and living with mom and dad. She was a wonderful lady and will surely be missed here on earth , but she will be a wonderful treasure in God's house!

I remember Jean and her husband Vance very well from my childhood and teenage days. She was a wonderful wife and mother, always taking us kids in and helping to keep us in line. My condolences to Lynn and Dave.
