  • So glad I had the opportunity to know Jeanne. It is so hard to loose one’s mother and my sincere condolences are with you all. The occasions that I was able to spend time with Jeanne allowed me to witness her loving heart and how much she loved being around animals. She will be missed.

  • I am sorry to learn of Jeanne’s passing. My mother, Evelyn Williams, worked at the Ribbon Factory with her for many years. I know she would want me to convey her regrets at Jeanne’s passing. Mom is in a nursing home and will soon be 104 years old.

    • Deanna–

      Thank you so much for your note. I remember your Mom well. Such a sweetie! I can’t believe she’ll be 104!! She always told Mom how much she enjoyed looking out her window to see the Christmas lights Mom put up.
