Jean was a Wonderful mother, grandmother and mother in law. She was a very kind and loving woman. We all have Beautiful memories of her! We always looked forward to her delicious salads, meatballs, and the famous cheesecakes she made for us. When Paul and I married, I had three young children , she treated them as if they were her biological grandchildren., always hugging them and kissing them, loving them unconditionally. Jean and I had beautiful talks together, and always laughed together, she never came for a simple dinner without bringing me a gift! I will miss my sweet mother in law with all my heart as my children will too! I know Jean has earned her wings into heaven and she is now reunited with her husband and her daughter, whom she missed and loved dearly! Rest in eternal peace Jean, I will miss you terribly. I know you are in a better place and you are at peace. I love you.... xoxo
