    There are just not enough adjectives to describe JAH a true example of a hardworking, kind, wise mentor-mother-employee-sister-daughter-boss-grandmother-wife-friend-cat lover-neighbor. Who lead a happy life full of memories, successes and accomplishments we learned from and will always cherish. Who will always be remembered, recalled and missed. Whose life values and advice she gave to those around her, remain alive within them. Jeanne did an exceptional job in raising her children and their families, and they will continue to be loved and supported. Rest in peace my dear friend, I love you. It’s never goodbye, it’s always I’ll see you later ❤️
