  • Your loved one lived a long life. She was granted with what the Bible calls “special mightiness”.(Psalms 90:10) May you put hope in the “RESURRECTION” that’s promised at (John 5:28,29) where you will be reunited with “JEAN” again in the future. I’m sorry for your loss.

      Hello Jack,

      Thank you for the kind gesture. Pat, Mike and I appreciate your thoughts and condolences.

  • I would like to offer sincere condolences. Jean was a feature of my childhood and teen years when I lived in Mt Vernon; she was a very special lady. I treasure the paperweight I bought when her effects were auctioned and I think of her whenever I hold it. I was lucky enough to visit her several times when she was in the living center. Everyone whose lives she touched will miss her radiant smile and grace.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to you and I am certain you will cherish your many memories of her.

  • Oh, how I loved your mother’s spirit. I remember both your parents when they would visit my grandparents (Paul and Edith Christy in Belpre ). Your mother attended my parents 50th anniversary (Bob and Marilyn Schafer) party 12 years ago . It was wonderful to see her and catch up. I am so sorry for your loss – she was a wonderful person.

    Blessings to all of you ,

  • Please accept our deepest sympathy. Your mother was such a wonderful neighbor and joy to be around when we lived on North Main Street. She was always sharing flower bulbs and starts of flowers with me. I have so many in my current garden. I think of her every time I see them bloom. She is so fondly thought of. Our granddaughter, Edie, absolutely adored her. I know your mom enjoyed having her visit. Please know your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

    Our Sincere Condolences,

    Howard and Candy
