Mary I am so sorry to hear of your loss. When I saw Jean's picture it took me to back in the day when we worked at the Oscoda Big Boy together. Jean was always filled with such kindness.

Mary Karen so very sorry to hear the news of Jean's passing. You two ladies were both such "characters" and enjoyed working with you both at TSJH and then seeing you out later at the store, garage sales or the few times I stopped by your house to chat. Prayers and hugs to Mary Karen and may Jean RIP and keep it lively up in heaven at the same time.
