I have so many found memories of Jean. I worked with her for a few years at Saylor’s. Jean was the sweetest and kindest person I know. She would do anything for anyone many times before her self. She became like a mother to me and a grandmother to my girls. We will miss her beyond words. Always making us smile and laugh. She loved her husband, kids and grandkids more then they could ever imagine. When she talked about them it lit up her face. Jean thank you for friendship and your loving and caring ways. I’ll leave you with this final phrase” GOD LUV YOU HONEY” you will always hold a special place in my heart❤️😢😘 Vicky Carbaugh
