    Aunt Jean was far ahead of her time with her career and her community activities. She was a strong, independent woman. She was also very friendly and kind. I know she cherished her children, grands, siblings, as well as her beautiful Siamese cats, (that are vivid memories from my childhood). RIP Aunt Jean. I know my Dad was there to greet you.

    My condolences to the family. I miss Marjean very much. She was one of the people I fell in love with while visiting my husband there. We only saw each other at the evening meal, but I would always get a smile from her. Had I known she had been a realtor, I would have talked with her about it. I too was a realtor. She was such a lovely person. We will miss her.
