“Jean was a dedicated wife to her late husband James. She loved her three children immensely. She was the best grandmother to her grandchildren and a great...great grandmother to her great grandchildren. To try to explain her personality or spirit to someone who didn’t know her is next to impossible. She is the true example of unconditional love to her family always. She will be revered and missed”~The Aikens Family
