    I have fond memories of Jean; always kind and sweet. I remember when she would be at her folks house when they were alive. She always asked about my kiddo’s & formed a connection with them, especially my Jacob, at an early age. Ruby & Charlie’s phone number was similar to their own home number & Jacob used to call them by mistake & once they figured out who he was, they would just talk & visit with him. It’s a joyous memory & I will miss seeing her. Donna Steed- your friend

    We are sorry that we were in Mississippi & Alabama during the service time. We would have been there to show our respects for all of you. Thinking of you all. Butch was quite upset when I told him that Jean had passed. Cherish every sweet connection that remains. Butch & Donna Steed
