Sept. 29, 1933-Feb. 24, 2010
Wednesday night my mother in law passed away. She died peacefully after a very long illness, with a dear friend beside her holding her hand. Jeanne had a full life, though sometimes difficult and very stressful but also one filled with great joy, love, family and many friends. She loved her late husband dearly and has missed him so much since he died 17 years ago. She loved her 3 sons, and especially her youngest son (my husband), Dan. She was fiercely proud of him, the first to go to college in her family. Jeanne adored and doted on all of her grandchildren, who were the lights of her life.
She was strong, feisty, funny, outspoken, quirky, opinionated, loving, right brain, creative, and kind of 'kooky' in a good way. She was truly a 'character' if you know what I mean. I often say they don't make people like this anymore. I learned to love antiques, old buildings, history and appreciate art from her. Sadly for us this world will somehow just not be the same anymore. Jeanne, I will miss you always and you know I'll take good care of Dan, so please don't worry. I'm blessed to have had you in my life for the 23 years I've known you. Thank you.
With much love,
