“Jean loved the Lord and attended First Baptist Church In Fairview Hgts, IL. She was a loyal friend and loved being surrounded by her family. Her favorite pastime was playing Canasta and she played to win. In fact, she loved playing all kinds of games. She also loved gardening and truly had a green thumb. Plants thrived under her care. One of the ways she showered her love on her family and friends was through her love of crocheting. If she knew you, eventually you would be the proud recipient of one of her handmade hats, scarves or blankets. Jean made friends easily and left a positive impression wherever she went.”

Remember, this isn’t goodbye, but only until we meet again.
