Working and talking with Jeanne I got inspired to research my family tree and and still doing that 25 years later in part because of her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

Jeanne and I, both being “ladies of a certain age” living alone, made regularly scheduled calls to each other just to verify that we weren’t passed out on a floor somewhere. We got to know each other well and shared stories about our lives. Jeanne had such a passion for tennis and recounted several exciting skiing adventures. She adored Sophie (who, thanks to Kate, a fellow book club member, and her husband) will have a new home with a beautiful back yard. Being someone with an active and scientific mind, Jeanne also did significant genealogy research. She, and her contributions to book club meetings will be sorely missed.

Jeanne was a wonderful neighbor and friend. I enjoyed doing water aerobics and crafts with her. We already miss her presence walking Sophie around Mason Manor. Jeanne served on the board in the past and she was a big part of this community.
