    I knew Jean from UC-C. I was the secretary for a while and she would come almost every Friday to fold bulletins. She was a kind lady, very wise and full of compassion. Jean will be greatly missed by many, including myself.

    You have my deepest sympathy for your lose. I remember her from the High School. She was working there when I was there. She was stricked but a good person. Years later our paths crossed again and we got to sit and visit with each other and swapped a few stories about the school days. May she Rest in Peace.
