    Dear Susan and family: Deepest condolences to you and your family on Jeanne’s passing. A caring and genuine person, we feel privileged and honored to have had our lives cross with Jeanne’s – beginning many years ago when she was an active, committed member of the Muttart Art Gallery board. Wonderful memories from then, as well as from dinners, coffees and a Montana sailing weekend together are now treasured even more.

    Susan, Herb and family, we are so very sorry to hear of Jeanne’s passing. She was much too young to leave you and I know she will be sorely missed by all. It’s been quite a few years since we last visited but I have many fond memories of my time spent with you and your big sister Jeanne when we were growing up. Hugs to you Susan, Herb, Claire and Jennifer and your grandchildren. She was a great aunt to your girls and a sister to you. Hold on to all your good memories.

    Susan and Herb and family, so sorry to hear of your loss. Jeanne used to call me the ” 2nd cousin, twice removed!!” to put me in my place as the younger cousin in high school in North Van.
    When your Dad got the transfer to North Van our families were very close for a number of years, but as time went on and we all grew up we lost touch.
    We will be thinking of you at this time of sorrow.
