    Jeanne was an amazing mother to all of us growing up in that little town.
    A fond memory that I will never forget.

    So glad that I told mom that little lie , inviting her over for coffee many moons ago. I can still remember Jeannie’s face at 730 in the morning when mom and I knocked. Jean had no clue, she hadn’t invited mom, I did. From that day on…. you were like family . There was lots of coffee and cigarettes in the kitchen while the boys watched hockey night in Canada.
    I thank God for Jean, she was like another mother.
    Gone, but never forgotten..
    Love you Jean
