Bob, Ellen and Jeff, I was saddened to read of Jeanne's death. She was a beautiful, spiritual woman with lot's of spirit! I loved walking and talking on the beach with her, she helped me through some difficult times. Your family will always be intertwined with ours. She was a gentle soul. Love to you all.

I am saddened by the loss of my mentor and dear friend Jeanne. Strong in her faith and her love for family, friends, those in need and nature’s animals, Jeanne will be fondly remembered by all of those who knew her. She dedicated her life’s gifts and talents to serve others, especially children at risk and with those with special needs.
