From: Dawn Lantz
Sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.

From: Madelynne White Kankus
Because Jean's and my last name started with W, we were always in the same homeroom.   In fact, we often sat next to each other.  I always enjoyed seeing and talking to her at our class reunions. I am very sorry for your loss.

From: Nancy Gage
To all the family, my thoughts and prayers are with each of you in this loss of your dear Jean. I never got to know her, but I am also great grandmother to one of her great grandchildren, Juliet Lee.  Wish I could have known her. Now she is resting in the arms of Jesus. God bless all of her family.

From: Dee Cohen
I am saddened to read about the death of Jeannie.. I am happy to say I made her laugh at our TOPS meeting, when she used to come there with her caretaker..
May she Rest in Peace..
With Deepest Sympathy,
Dee Cohen
