Aunt Jean's love of God and family will always be remembered. I cherish the memories of staying with Aunt Jean and Uncle Mike on our trips to Elwood City. We are so thankful that we got to visit with Aunt Jean this July and share some of those many memories. A great woman who is now in a greater place.

Aunt Jean was like a second mother to my brothers Bob, Rick and myself. We all spent many hours with her working at Ellwood Bottling from the time we could only stack cases and sort bottles to driving deliveries in our late teens and early twenties. We laughed and cried as life unfolded around us. We loved her dearly and will miss her greatly. Love you Bill.
Always smiling, always listening always optimistic, always helping. I was blessed and proud to have had to have had such a wonderful person as aunt Jean.

Thank you Virginia for always being a part of my trips to Ellwood City. I am grateful to have known such a thoughtful lady and one heck of a cook! All the family in California is thinking of you. God Bless.
