Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Heaven did indeed get an angel and I am sure God has a very special place saved for Jean where she will be able to watch over her family she loved so much.

Jean was one of the funniest ladies I knew. She made me laugh. I know she did alot of walking everyday and I admired her for that. Especially at her age. I thought she would live along time. She spoke about her family to me. We both spoke about our families to each other and our christianity. Jean and I believed the same things and we e-mailed each other christian e-mails. God will take the sorrow you bear and comfort you with healing. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Matt.5:4 I will miss Jean but I will never forget her. God is with you all.

To Lyle and Family, Keith and I were shocked to hear of Jeannie's death. When we were in WI in Nov of this year we ran into her coming out of the doctor's office . We had a chance to chat and she told us about the family and how happy she was to have those beautiful granchildren. It was as though no time had passed since we saw her last. Lyle, you and Jeannie will always have a special place in our hearts. You both are what we call "real and true people". I cannot begin to tell you how much the wonderful memories of you both are a part of our lives. God bless you and your wonderful family.

Lyle and family, Heaven has truly gained an angel!Jean will be missed by so many people! She always had a kind word or a story to share to make you smile. She had such a calm and nurturing demeaner. She spoke so fondly of all of you, she was so proud of each and every one of you! It was always a joke between us that she should adopt me. She was a wonderful person and a great friend, it truly will leave a void in my heart. I wish we wouldn't have lost touch for a while but am so glad that we did get to reconnect. She will be missed.

Lyle and family, We cannot find words to express our sadness for your loss. God gained a special angel on Monday evening and He is very blessed to have her. We will miss her smile and kind words more than you know. Lynn and Kevin Betts

Please accept my sincerest and heartfelt condolences on your loss. It has been my honor to have known and great joy to have called Jean my friend and to be considered one of hers. She will be truly missed by me and so many others who have had the opportunity to know her. I cannot say enough about her undaunting and happy spirit and what she meant to me. Although we did not remain in close contact you could always count on Jean to greet you as if you had not missed a moment of her company. She always had a big hug and plenty of laughs to greet you and a heart to pull you in close. Heaven not only gained an Angel but she has had her wings much longer than any of us ever knew.

Mere words would not express the loss I feel in hearing about Jean. She will be sorely missed. Her passing has put a hole in my heart and blank spot in my life. I wish I could be there to give you all a big hug. I will carry her strength through the rest of my life. She was very much like my mom, so much so that I thought of her as one. My mother hen looking out for me, worrying about me. She had alot on her plate.Now she can rest and watch us use what she had taught to us. Please don't hesitate to ask me for anything I can do for you.
