  5. Jean was a wonderful neighbor and friend. Her strength and independence was admired and respected. She was an intelligent and smart lady who could carry her own in any circumstance. I loved seeing her walk down the parkway (even with her walker)-everyone knew and watched out for Jean on her walkabouts. She was history and book smart and I had wonderful conversations with Jean. I am so sorry for her family she will truly be missed.
