I got so much from Jean, she worked with me on the design committee at Saint Mary’s for many years. She gave so much to me and my family, always supportive. She truly was a giving person and soul! She will be missed.

Oh my.... what a special soul! Jeanne was one of my favorite teachers. She was gentle and inspiring and relished bringing out the least bit of creativity in anyone willing to learn. One of the greatest mentors ever, as she always loved learning new things herself..I will always remember that smile and her saying "I can't wait to see how far your can go" Patty Leiker.
