    Jean was a dear friend and my husband Howard and I enjoyed many wonderfull times with Jean and Jim. Golfing trips with our South Hills buddies and trips to Marco Island to visit them. I miss visits I could not make to see her because of covid. All my sympathy to the family and knowing Jean is with Jim along with family members and close friends greeting her on her arrival. God Bless. Peggy Teresi
