Jean was my friend for over forty years and she had many, many friends. She was a compassionate person, always there when needed. We shared a lot of good times. She was loved by all her friends; but her main focus was always her family, her children. Jean was,first and foremost,a loving wife and mother. I will miss her more than words can tell. Goodbye, Dear Friend, sleep well.

Prayers and comfort to all the Sweeneys for the loss of your sweet mom and grandmom. I’ll never forget the support that she and Erle showed ALL our boys in their sports activities. She was surely a devoted mom and grandmom, and touched all who knew her.
