Jean was always a friendly and kind person and added much to the events of the Wetherington Condominium neighborhood. I enjoyed seeing her walk with Andy, or sometimes by herself, around the villages as long as she was able. My condolences to all the family. You were blessed to have her for a mother and grandmother.

One of my favorite people in my life! Great memories... I know she will rest in peace and be the perfect addition in heaven! Hope to see you August 16 God willing! She taught me I could eat mushrooms raw! Yum!!
