    Aunt Jean was a wonderful lady and friend. It was always a blessing to spend time with her!

    Jean (aka “Grandma Jean” to my boys) will be greatly missed. We had the pleasure of living next door to Jean for the last 10 years. She was one of the most caring and kind-hearted people I’ve known. I loved visiting with her and can still hear her voice asking me to come in and sit down. She was so proud of her children and grandchildren. I was so happy to hear that her last day was a beautiful one spent with her family. Jean was a mentor to me in so many ways- a fellow mother of boys. May she find peace in heaven with her late husband.
    With Love, The Muellers
