So very sorry for your loss ... Jeanne and I went back to Holy Family School and playing together on Taft Street as kids! In later years when we reconnected, we would spend time recalling the simplicity of growing up in such a loving community. Blessings and prayers ...

Very sorry to hear about Jeanne. I’ll always remember the visits to the house and the store. She always had a smile and was always great to see her.

My deepest sympathy goes out to you, Jeanne’s family. The same warm, positive disposition that Jeanne displayed in high school was still present when I saw her over the past several years when I would come to the North Adams area to join our St Joe Class of ‘60 suppers. I will miss her when we are again able to gather. She and all your family will be in my prayer, especially on Wednesday as I join with you in spirit for her funeral.
