We are very sorry to hear about the passing of Jeanie. Our grand kids loved to go and visit her everyday. She was wonderful to them and enjoyed her time with them as much as they did with her. Jim and I loved talking with her also. She has been a wonderful neighbor of ours for over 35 years. We will miss seeing her. Our prayers and thoughts go out to her family. Jeanie has gone to be with her family who she missed dearly. Jeanie, may you rest in peace. We will miss you. With deepest sympathy, Ann and JimAnn and Jim Minella (almost 5 years ago)
