Dear Jim, John, Bob, Eric, Renee, and Lisa, spending time with all of you and Jean each year was one of the most memorable and wonderful experiences of our childhood. We used to eagerly anticipate our trips to Cincinnati and the week-long slumber party that ensued, or meeting you in Michigan to vacation together. It is the main reason I make sure our kids have a similar enriching cousin experience in their lives each year. Through it all your Jean was such a wonderful, sweet, tolerant, happy, generous aunt that she was an absolute joy to be around. Even now it feels as though those memories cannot possibly be 50 years old they are so vibrant and fresh and happy. I am sorry for your loss, all the greater because of how she lived. - Michael, Anita, Marika, Lisa and Charles

Amy and I have known Jean and Jim for thirty years, and witnessed her Love of Family throughout this time. She was very sweet and kind, and full of Love, just like her wonderful daughter ( our daughter-in-law) Lisa, who we have known from her Junior year in High School when she started dating our son Andy. Jean seems to have dedicated so much of her life to building a wonderful family with outstanding Christian values reflected in how they live their lives everyday. This wonderful legacy of hers will live on for generations to come. God Bless her and all those who will miss her everyday for the rest of their lives. Bill and Amy.

Dear Bob, Michelle & Family, we were all saddened to hear of the passing of your Mother. I know the few times that we were Blessed to be in her company it was memorable. Please know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers through this most difficult time. Also, this is a time of celebration knowing that now your Mother is now in the presence of God and will forever enjoy what her great faith has taught her. God Bless you all, Michael, Laurie, and Sophia
