  1. Jean will always be remembered for her quiet ladylike personality. She sewed wonderful items that made the rest of us envious of her talent. She and Dean were long time members of our Seekers Sunday School Class. Jean was always willing to give her time in church. She baked & cooked wonderful meals for our Pot Lucks and always participated in our Helping Hands program. May God bless and keep her family healthy and safe. She is missed.
