I'm going to miss you Jeannie! Always so thoughtful and kind, truly one of God's angels. I wish we would have had that lunch where we would have worn the t shirts you had made up celebrating our 70th birthdays. Love you and miss you.

I am heartbroken hearing about the loss of a truly wonderful dear sweet friend! A friend, whom I am so glad I got to know better through all our trip, luncheons and dinners. Love you Jeannie!

So hard to lose your best friend. Jean and I have been together since grade school. I will miss her terribly. I am sorry she cannot spend more time with all those who loved her.

We have so many memories of Jean attending her grandsons sports events and participating in their school activities. She loved being a part of their lives and community. She will be extremely missed.

We are all saddended by the sudden loss of Jean. She will always be remembered, especially by Elaine Bennett as "one of my Kus kids". Our sympathies to all family and friends. Jim and Elaine Bennett Scott and Terri Kasik (if someone could send one of the funeral home cards to Elaine Bennett that would be appreciated)
