One Condolence for Jeanne M. DiMaio

  • Jeanne was my closest friend in high school and we lost touch when I left Wilmington to fly for American Airlines. I tried finding her many times over the years, but unfortunately couldn’t locate her. I was told at our HS reunion that she had passed and I just came across this obituary. I was very lucky to have spent so much time with her and her family and will always treasure those memories. If anyone in her family sees this, please reach out to me via FB..Marcia Zaret-Gordon (Charlotte, NC)
