    My sister Kathy and I are forever grateful to Aunt Jeanne (and John ) for her help in assisting our mother (Connie, Jeanne's sister) with finding and acquiring a home in the gated community in Wildwood where she has lived for 20 years. Mom has treasured her little home, the surrounding woods, the "new" friends, walks with dogs, the sense of security, and bike rides around that park during these two decades. Most of all, she treasured being able to drop in on her big sister, as Jeanne and John's home was just a two minute walk away. All of us — Mom, Kathy, my wife Carol, and I — have special memories of holiday meals at Jeanne's home where John would show off his newest computer gadget and Jeanne would tell me about the book she was reading. May her soul be at rest. My thoughts and prayers go out to my cousins, my aunts, and all the grandkids and great grandkids. Bob Sargent

    Loved visiting with Jeanne and John at their home in Wildwood, FL., eating pierogis and kielbasa They were such gracious hosts showing us all the sights with us laughing at Jeanne's stories. A master story teller! She was so proud and boastful of her kids and grandkids and great grandkids. My wife, (her little sister), Lin shared old memories and laughed heartily along with sister Connie who lives in Wildwood also. We had a wonderful time and wish we had been able to see Jeanne again. Talked to her often after she moved back to Lynn. Our deepest heartfelt sympathies to all the family. She is loved and missed and cherished through our memories and thoughts.
