We are so sorry for the loss of Jean. We use to live next door to her at Willogrove Apts. We moved in a few months after she did and moved out the end of July after buying a house. I always enjoyed our hallway chats whenever we were coming in or heading out. She was such a sweet person and she will be be deeply missed. Cindy, Jim and Megan Ferritto.

Dear friends,
It has bern an honor to celebrate the Sacraments with Jean, when she was at TriPoint Hospital. She was a very brave and courageous person. She loved you all so very much, and loved the life our Lord blessed her with. Jean is being remembered in my Sunday and Memorial Day Masses this weekend with each of you. She loved you all very much! God's Peace and Good Health.

Aunt Jean was one of a kind. She will be sorely missed! She was a daughter, a sister, a mother, an aunt, a grandmother, and now an angel.
