Jean’s love for gardening was evident in the vibrant blooms that adorned her home. She loved working in her flowers tending to them with care, cultivating beauty in every corner of her garden.

However, it was during the Christmas season that Jean truly came alive. Every year she transformed her home into a Christmas wonderland. Her decorations became a source of joy and wonder for all who visited. The magic of Christmas radiated from her home, enveloping everyone in its warm embrace.

Above all else she cherished her family and grandchildren. They were the light of her life, and she treasured every moment spent in their company. Her love for them knew no bounds.
