I remember Jean coming to our house to visit with my mom and showing her the Avon catalog. My mom enjoyed the visit but she always bought things too. They also worked together at Philips Dept. Store. I would see her at the grocery store and catch up with her when she still lived at home and she told me that she would go to the nursing home and visit with the residents. She was such a friendly and caring person. I will always remember her infectious smile. I'm so sorry for all of you. Judi (Bales) Main

So sorry to hear of Jean’s passing. Jean was my mother’s (Vera Mae Ericson Peterson) cousin and I was named after her....Sandra Jean. She lived with us a short time in Fremont. I remember she always had a bright smile for everyone.

Jean lived next door to my mother Joey Schwanke for many years. She was a constant help to my mother
and she worked at the Greenhouse. She was always cheerful and she loved to go to Church. She did a lot
of crocheting and embroidery handiwork for the church circle and she gave her time and her talent. She was
loved by all. May she rest in peace. JO HEINZ
