    I worked with Jean for many years at the MNPD Dispatch Center. She was such a lovely and very caring person. She loved her family and friends as well as her pets. I will always remember the good times we shared with one another. RIP my dear friend you will always be in my heart until we meet again. Debbie Wheeler

    I worked with Jean for any years. She was such a bright spot in a very rough job. She used to allow my children to listen in to her calls and encouraged them with their reading and artwork. She was such a special lady and will be missed terribly. Due to my own health, I will not be able to attend the services, but know you, her family, will be in my thoughts and prayers and I will be there in spirit.
