The family wishes to thank Rahel from the McMurray Adult Home and the doctors and staff at Chaplaincy Hospice for the compassion and care they gave Jean and our family during her stay with them.
I remember Jean Marie all the way back to 1956-1957 when we were in first grade at St. Patrick’s. Her mom was also my second grade teacher. We maintained our friendship even when I switched to public school in 4th grade through 8th grade. Again we were classmate all through DeSales High School. Her smile, the twinkle in her eye and caring personality is still remembered to this day. Rest in peace Jean Marie!! We will meet again!! HUGS!!!
Jean was a very special person in our lives. Always positive, finding humor in almost everything! She would make time in her busy day to attend my grandson’s piano and violin concerts.
My favorite story she told me was about a yoga class we took and she got stuck in a pose, the instructor had to untangle Jean!
Jean was greatly loved.
I miss you, Jean, miss your humor and our conversations.
We took care of Jean for only two weeks. Jean was very kind and polite even with the condition she was in. It was a pleasure to take care of her and she was the best client we could ask for. We love you and miss you. I wish we had more time together.
You will forever be missed!
