  1. Uncle Vic and family, Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Aunt Jean was very loved and will be missed by all who knew her.

  2. Jean was a wonderful friend. She will be missed by everyone who knew her. You are in my prayers.

  3. Your mother was a great woman. She was a kind,loving person with a great sense of humor. I always enjoyed being around her.My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  4. To the family of Gloria Bell, So sorry to hear of your loss. I will always remember Glorias sweet smile. I met Gloria years ago when she came to Springfield for testing. On several occasions she had Tami with her. The last time her grand daughter Evelyn was also with. Gloria and I always shared stories together and she always ended our visit with a big hug. I can say that Gloria loved her family dearly and was very very proud of her loving family. My deepest sympathy is with you all…we did lose a dear friend, but heaven gained a beautiful angel..

  5. I was at the Visitation and Funeral and thought all of it was lovely. Jean’s family really did Jean proud! I had known Jean off and on (I lived away from Greenview for 30 years) for most of my life and thought her a very special person. We will keep all in our thoughts and prayers as you adjust to your loss. Roger and Sue Elliott

  6. My deepest sympathy to all of Jean’s family. Jean did my Mom’s hair years ago and Mom(Jenine Ridge)always said that nobody cut her hair better than Jean. So sorry for your loss.
