    Our sympathy Jerome, Alexis, and Natalie on the passing of your mother. Jean was a great friend, wonderful Aunt and Godmother who treated me with kindness from the time I was a young child growing up. Always looked forward to her letters and cards updating me on her activities. She loved her family and enjoyed being close to her children and grandchildren. She will be missed. Rest in Peace Jean.

    I am very sad to hear today of Jean’s passing. Jean was a unique individual who was very dedicated to her job and also very entertaining to work with. She made me laugh with her funny comments on things going on around her. Jean was very reliable, we could always count on her to be at work, even when she had health issues. She was very loyal and dedicated to her job at AMA. My deepest condolences to Alexis, Natalie and Jerome on the loss of your mom.

  6. So sad to hear about Jean. Many great stories can be shared by friends and colleagues of Jean while at AMA. Her knowledge, kindness and most of all her sense of humour will be missed by many. Thinking of her family at this difficult time.

  7. Jean was one of the most interesting women I knew. She taught me so much and had such a big heart. Her family was so important to her and she passed on her strength, love and sense of adventure to all of you. Memories of Jean will be forever a part of my experience at AMA , it would have been very boring without her. I will miss her.
    My condolences to her whole family.
