A special thank you to those at Agrace Hospice who cared for Jean in the last year of her life and to Jenny, her wonderful caregiver. Together, they allowed Jean to remain at home with her beloved cat, Snowshoe. Please share a memory.
Jean's children were the light of her life. She was a loving, strong and patient mom to her five kids. It's her children's turn to say, "Mom, you've earned your angel's wings."

"Sue, we were sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. I remember her as a friendly, sweet woman from our school days. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
May the angels lead her into paradise.
May the martyrs come to welcome her
And take her to the Holy City, the New and Eternal Jerusalem.
May she have eternal rest.
With Sympathy, Diane (Buchanan) and Tom Kramer
