    Sending my heartfelt sympathy to all who was lucky enough to know Jean. I have been seeing Jean on Sundays for the past three years. I started working for her to help out with odds and ends, do her shopping, and we became fast friends. I always looked forward to our time on Sundays and enjoyed our visits. I will always remember her chipper spirit, contagious laugh, sweet tooth, and good conversation. So very sorry for your loss.

    I worked with Jean when I was just starting out at Treasury. I remember her as intelligent, kind, helpful, and cheerful. She always had a smile for everyone. Always a bright spot in my day when I’d had a conversation with Jean! So very sorry for your loss.

    So sorry to see this about Aunt Jean…I’ve always called her that since knowing her through her visits to the Hillsdale Fitches. I enjoyed seeing her ocassionally while working for the State and even visited her on Marsh Rd. when she was living there. She was always pleasant and a good conversationalist. My condolences to all.
