Jean was one of the first people I met when I started coming to the Senior dance on Thursday afternoon. She was very warm and welcoming, always smiling, even though she wasn't always feeling well. She also sent me some great jokes and cartoons on email. I really liked her a lot. She was a real lady. Rest in peace Jean.
