Aug. 29, 1932 to Feb. 12, 2013

Jean celebrated her 80th surprise birthday party last August and was crowned Queen for a Day. All her family and lifetime friends were in attendance. Jean has now been granted her faiths fulfillment to live in eternity without pain or restriction of any physical ailments. Children: Brenda, Scott, and Skip. Grandchildren: Angela, Jennifer, Kate, Micah, and Annie. GREAT-Grandchildren: Roman, Trevin, Brodie, Sophie, and Alexa, plus a 6th due during her birthday month of August. Her three younger sisters are: Joyce Miller, Fay Porter, and Kay Lane.

We will miss our little Italian mama and the part she played in each of our lives. A small note I found in her kitchen, sums up her philosophy in life: ”We make a living by what we GET; we make a life by what we GIVE.” For she was a Jolly Good Old Gal, which nobody can deny.

A casual Memorial reception potluck will be held Sunday, February 17 at Suntree Village Rec Hall, SE 15th St. near corner at Reed Market Rd. Please feel free to drop in during the hours of 1 p.m. through 4 p.m. (Parking is limited. Be mindful of private driveways)
