    To the family of Jeanette (gramma Jean ) I am deeply sorry for the passing of a beautiful loving soul. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her. Her home was always open for the children to come and cool off in the pool. She was known as gramma Jean to them.May she rest in peace in the loving arms of our Lord Jesus. Who she believed in and attended mass regularly. She has left many wonderful memories seen at many family gatherings and always so stylish and beautiful. Her beauty shown bright from within to all she encountered. RIP with your Lord Jean ,well done child.
