She worked for Public Finance in Lynn in her younger years. She married in 1956 and became a devoted mother to her two children. She was a member of the Women’s club and the Moose club for many years. She enjoyed fun trips and parties associated with the St. Theresa’s bowling league. She loved her weekly visits to have her hair done by her dear friend, Paula Vesce of Revere and she loved all the girls in the shop. She also loved her weekly shopping trips to Walgreens and Rite Aid, where she was known by many of the workers. Jean loved to cook, but her specialty was baking. She loved to put on big dinners for her family and found such joy in decorating her table and seeing her family all together. In later years, she loved spending holidays with Marguerite Johnson (Mom to Dennis) and her extended family in Woburn followed by dessert at her sister June’s house in Peabody where she loved to be surrounded by all her children. She loved having fun and being silly and laughing with her family. She loved music and will always be remembered as singing all the words to all of the old songs of the 40’s and 50’s. She was also a very good dancer in her day. Dancing at all the dance halls on the old Revere Beach. She enjoyed working for a fudge stand on Revere Beach. She loved to reminisce about all the rides, restaurants, and dance halls knowing that those were the good old days. The. is one thing that Jean loved most of all was her church. St. Theresa’s and St. Anthony’s as she was very religious. She loved Jesus with all her heart. She never liked to miss church. The priests were so good to her over the years and she loved all the parishioners. She was often the last one to leave as she loved to hug and kiss everyone coming out of the church. She loved all the plays and parties and festivals at St. Anthony’s. She loved Singing and dancing and the parties with (DJ) Gary DeBella. Jean will always be remembered for her morning ritual which was praying over her pray list. She often added people to her pray list and her prayers were so strong that they worked to help others on many occasions. Please remember Jean as one of the strongest people I have ever known. In the later years, she suffered a stroke and a fall which broke her hip. She fought through such intense pain when her hip surgery went wrong and she had to have 3 major surgeries in one month. She battled the pain with such strength and courage. Please remember Jean as one of the most forgiving people I have ever met. Her faith in God was so strong that she would often say, “Forgiveness is the most important thing you can learn in this life. Trust in God and forgive any wrong doings.”

She was the beloved wife of the late Robert M. “Bobby” Giguere of Revere. The mother of Robert T. Giguere and his wife Robin of Boxford. Her daughter Jacqueline J.
