Aunt Jeanne will be missed more than words can express. I cherish all the wonderful memories we shared. Holidays, Sunday dinners, picnics and any excuse to get together. There was always great food and lots of laughter. Thank you for the memories. Love you always. Lisa

Jeanne will always be remembered by her smile and kind heart. She opened up her home every Christmas season to invite neighbors for desserts and friendship. She will be missed.

I got to know Jeanne on a trip to Amelia Island with the ladies from Pine Creek. Although I didn’t know her real well, I know she was a lovely, sweet, kind, and friendly lady who will be missed in the neighborhood. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends.

Those sweet memories of our lives spent with you and Ed were some of the best. Christmas and New Years in your beautifully decorated home. The dinner parties and especially our birthday parties where we shared the same date. They definitely make us smile. Our love and prayers go out to Ed and all of their family. Things end but memories last forever. Love you Chris & Art

Aunt Jeanne was my closest aunt. I was in her and uncle Eddie’s wedding. We worked together for several years but my most favorite and cherished memories of her are from our Sunday dinners growing up and holiday get togethers. Aunt Jeanne was always happy, fun and loving. She was a great crafter, cook and all around wonderful person. I will truly miss my aunt Jeanne but I know she is in a better place free from pain, happy with Jesus, her parents, sister and my dad! I love you so much aunt Jeanne. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me! I will truly miss you! Mary, Bob and Angela
