  4. Jean was a very special person in so many ways. She was so welcoming, giving, loving and understanding. The world is missing a wonderful lady but heaven has a new bright star of an angel. Jean was a very special friend and companion of my uncle Nick Credico and a great comfort to him at the end of his life for which I will always be grateful.

    My deepest sympathy to all her loved ones – which are numerous to be sure!
    She was a great lady and will always be remembered with love.
