We were very surprized to learn of Jean’s passing. Our sincere sympathy to all the family. Jean was at the same table as our mother Mary Yaceyko. She always shared any news with us when we visited. Jean was worried about Ken and all the work he had at the farm and that he was all alone. We will miss her very much. Liz,Vicki, Irene & Steve.May her soul rest in peace.
