My deepest sympathies to all of my Joseph cousins. I love the picture you've chosen - it exemplifies Aunt Jean's loving and fun spirit. I have such fun, loving memories of our families growing up together. Not a lot of money, but a lot of love and laughter. I know she is finally at rest and reunited with those she loved, but, it is still hard for me to say a final goodbye. May she find peace as God welcomes her home in the arms of the angels. Aunt Jean, rest well in God's hands. Love and comfort to all of my cousins, Chris Greiner

My deepest condolences to Jean's family. I met Jean working at Oakmont. She was the most kindhearted and friendly person. Jean spoke of her children and grandchildren with great pride. She loved her life and knew how blessed she was. Looking into those beautiful blue eyes you'd see the goodness of her soul. I miss her smile and laughter. I am so sorry for you loss.

Aunt Jean and Mom Kathryn Cieslak were best of friends Ray always told me how when Mom and Aunt Jean were ironing on their iron rites they use to talk on the phone.
Everytime we saw Aunt Jean she had that great smile and witty sense of humor and always had a story about something Ray did growing up.
I can only imagine what's going on in heaven with Anthony, Joseph, Kathryn, Ralph and Ray.
All of them our missed dearly but oh what wonderful memories they left us with.
Of course you will grieve but remember we will all meet again when it is our turn.
My sincere condolences.
