  1. My husband and I were out of town when we heard the news about Jean’s death. She was a blessing to St. James. Greeting and handing out bulletins every Sunday, even if someone else was greeting that weekend. Always volunteering to help in any way she could, especially at Falloween and Cookies and Cocoa with Santa at Deaconess. She will be missed.
