I just with the family to know how much I thought of Jeanne. I’m late; I know, but I’m in Maine and just read of her death.
I had the enormous pleasure of working for Ed Thomas, a privilege I shall never forget, As he got a little older, along came Jeanne, the most attentive child I have ever known. She handled all challenges with calm, wisdom, and compassion, always preferring to dwell on the positive, and make the very best of every situation. She was a delight to know. My life was enhanced by just knowing her. The huge hole her death will leave behind, although swallowed up quickly in these hectic times, will never be allowed to
close by those she left behind.
Margo & family,
Although I didn’t know your Mom personally, I would like to send you my condolences.

Jeannie will always be remembered as "Aunt Jeannie," one of a lovely group friends who became honorary aunties to my young children. So blessed to have known her and to have experienced her kindness and spirit of generosity. My heart will always be grateful for her presence in our lives. ❤️

Tim, Margo and family,
Jeanne was a very special friend. We were in each other's weddings. I always looked forward to seeing her when I came to Iowa.
Do you remember when your rabbit bit the end of my daughter's finger at the farm? Your mom took her to your doctor.
Your parents came to Italy for my Kim's wedding. They made it even more special!
I'll be thinking about you all.
Blessing to you.
Jean, Charlie and my parents had many wonderful memories together! Jean was always so wonderful to me as I would visit and stay over at their house often to spend time with Margo. Sending prayers and comfort to the family.
We very much enjoyed knowing dear Jeanne from the time we knew her at Faith UCC. She was so kind as she took time to know us. I appreciate the obituary and the photo, so sweet. That is how I like to remember her, her graciousness and wonder of life.
Sincerely, Scarlet and Robert Wilson
Rest in Peace.
Gary and I cleaned windows for Jeanie and Don for many years. We always enjoyed our visits. We are saddened to hear of her passing but know she was suffering and ready to move on. God bless her family. Sylvia Erb. Quality Window Cleaning
My deepest condolences. I will always have fond memories of my Aunt Jeanne. She is family in my heart as my childhood was spent together sharing holidays, family reunions, and playing with my cousins on their farm in Williamsburg. Always neat as a pin! She was such a gracious and loving soul. All my love to the family and friends who have filled her life. She will be thought of tenderly and with great respect, love, and compassion. Donna J Hocker
Jeanne was the friend of a lifetime, a sister friend. Her soul touched anyone who had the privilege of being in her company.
She was definitely the matriarchal figure of her family. She shared that love with my family as well. Jeanne's life was filled with stories of her growing up on the farm to living for her children and grandchildren. I feel very blessed to be her friend in good times, especially on our girls days out! And my cheerleader when days seemed unfair. The world was a better place with Jeanne's love. I will miss my Bestie. Rest in peace Jeanne.
