  • Rest in peace Jeanne. Our thoughts, love and prayers to your grandsons and sweet sister.

  • Rest easy. Just discovered that I am distantly related. Her mother was a sister to my grandmother I never knew, Rosina. She passed days after giving birth to her youngest, my beloved Uncle Joey who was the last of her children to pass. So by blood, Jeanne was my second my second cousin. She sounds like she was a strong, independent woman. My condolences to her family, along with prayers for peace.

  • Cousin Jeanne, I’m so sorry I lost touch through the years, family should always stay together. I remember her smile and laugh so well. My mother, Mary Morales, loved her Aunt Francis and her Cousin Jeanne so much. My sincere condolences to Jeanne’s family at this terribly sad time.
