  1. I cannot remember life without Jean in it. She and my mom worked together at Texas City Terminal Railway forever, and have been friends over 40 years. She is truly a very special lady who will be greatly missed by many people. I was blessed to have a close, personal relationship with Jean these last six months and for that I will always be grateful.
    My thoughts and prayers are with the rest of the Eierdam family. May you hold your memories of this wonderful woman close, and find comfort in them.
    I love you, Jean, and I’ll see you again one day.

  2. I can’t express what Jean meant to my family and me over the years. Jean was my mother-in-law for 23 years and always regarded me as her own daughter and friend. That’s just how special she was. She was the grandmother to my children, and the most loving woman I’ve ever known. Never an unkind word or thought, this woman was truly a blessing to have known and loved. She’s now reunited with Ray, the love of her life, in Heaven. If there ever was an Earth Angel, it was Jean. We all loved her so very much. Her warm, loving and thoughtful soul will reside in my heart forever, as it will for all who knew her. My love goes out to all the Eierdam family. God bless you Jean.
