Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
Dear Irene and Virginia, Ain't Jeanne will be missed on earth but I am sure the Angels carried her right through the pearly gates of heaven! She was a beautiful women bothe inside and out. The streets of Newton will never be the same without her cleaning them up. I will keep all of you in my prayers! The Rosano, Morville, De Groat, Mills, Gallo, and Rich families pat a great aunt, and sister; they gained a guardian angel! RIP Aunt Jeanne.
