    My dear sister Jean, and Family,
    My heart aches with Jean/s passing. I am writing this message because I am not able to attend the funeral. Jean was a kind, loving, smart sister to me. She was the one, who was able to help take care of our mom in her final years. Thank You – Jean! Too many memories to list here! I love you and will miss you! God be with you!..Betty

    My spirit is with you for Jeannes funeral. Since we are the same age, I remember many heart to hearts with her, sharing “secrets” that young girls are wont to share! Parma visits were always a time to be excited about! Filled with fun on the Buckaroo, food and laughter! My love and sympathy to all the families.
    Sincerely and with much love,
    Joanne Deutsch Filocco
    Three sons, one daughter,13 grandchildren and nine great grands. Another due in March! Many more “step” grand and great grands!

    We are so sorry to hear about Jean’s passing and will remember her fondly. May God bless your family during this difficult time. We will remember our conversations with Jean after Mass when we would run into her at St. Paschal’s as well as the time she volunteered to help us run a scouting event at Camp Beaumont.

    Chuck, Michelle Olenik and Family

    George … be assured of my prayers for your sister and entire family at this time of loss. May our gracious God bless, support and comfort all of you.
    I had hoped to stop in at Zabor’s after a funeral Tuesday at St. John Bosco. However, I was an hour early and doors were not open.
