    We were so sorry to read about Jean’s passing at such an early age. We fondly remember many lovely chats with Jean on our front porch.
    Jean would meander over for a chat while she was visiting with Don and Marnie. It was lovely to know that Jean spent her final years having found a companion to share life with. There are many children who will fondly remember her kind but firm caretaking. We will always remember Jean as a caring, compassionate, down to earth person with a great sense of humor.

    Dear Tom, Mrs. Clay, John, Veronica & Family,
    I am so sorry to hear of Jean’s passing. She was a very dear friend and I have many happy memories of our friendship since high school. Skiing at Sunshine, hiking at Lake O’Hara and going to the A&W in the ‘Dart’ are just a few. She was a loyal and kind friend and I feel privileged that she was part of my life. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
    With Love,
    Sue

    Dear Tom, Mrs. Clay, John, Veronica and Family,
    I was very saddened to learn of Jeans passing. I met Jean here at the Harbours of Newport. She loved to talk to me about books as I helped to look after the library here. We became good friends and she loved the books by Anne Perry. Also she loved to travel and help people and was very kind to everyone. Jean will be sadly missed and especially her happy smile. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Eleanor
