  1. Jeanne was always friendly and kind. She will be missed by so many people. I am so sorry for the family.

  2. I will remember the fun times in Worship College, sharing the times of our kids growing up, our spiritual talks, and praying for each other. I will miss my friend

  3. So sorry for your loss Dean and all her beloved family and friends. A bright light has gone and will be sorely missed. I enjoyed the hours we talked and love her. So sweet and bubbly. Good bye dear friend.

  4. So sorry to hear of Jeanne’s passing. We were in homeschool group together many years ago. I know she was very proud of her children and loved them fiercely. I saw her a few years ago and she told me about all her grandchildren. She always had a big smile. May God give you strength and peace at this time.
