  1. Rest in peace Aunt Jean, I have many happy memories of years gone by.
    Once again you will be with your 5 step sisters and brothers Patricia, Margaret, Louise, Albert and Melvin (sadly not mentioned) just like the good old days. My condolences to the family.

  2. RIP Aunt Jeannie, many fond memories of our talks in the beauty shop. Remembering our vacation with Donna , you and I to Williamsburg and Virginia Beach. A great reunion with your brothers and sisters who passed before you. Sisters Patricia, Louise and Margaret. Brothers Albert and Melvin. They all loved you.

    They all loved you.

  3. Deepest Sympathy to all of the family. The times that I remember best is Aunt Jeannie loved to laugh. When she laughed we all laughed. Our stomachs may be hurting, tears would run down our face, but we were still laughing and having fun. Before my mother Margaret died, they would talk on the phone every day. My mom always look forward to their talks. It has been 10 years this month for her and we still miss her. I am sorry that there was not room in the obituary for the rest of Aunt Jeannie‘s family. Her sisters Margaret, Patricia and Louise and brothers Albert and Melvin. But no matter, they will all be together now and I can only imagine the laughter. So sorry for your loss. Judy and Family
