Jeanne was such a special lady. I could sit and talk with her for days. She had such a pleasant personality and such a numerous storyteller! I enjoyed getting to know her better in the last few years. Her last birthday party was such a blessing to see her enjoy her family and friends so much.
I will miss her and I know any others will too! I’m so sorry for the families tremendous loss.
We are all a bit better people for knowing her!
Tim and Jan McWhirter
