    Jean lived the music of life with love as her prevailing theme of family, friends, church, and nation. I met Jean through her knitting of afghans. I assembled the knitted strips for her which she then gifted to family and friends.

    Grandma, aka "Grammy Cracker" (my son Milo's nickname for her), had a heart of gold and lived a life of love. I hope this site can serve as a way for those who loved her to keep adding memories and photos for all of us to cherish.
