Special thank you to Jeanne`s friend, Diana Carrion, for her love and friendship.
After returning from Korea, Jeanne and Richard enjoyed a long and happy life in Gibbsboro for 50 years. Developing life long friends. Jeanne was employed in the Gibbsboro City Hall and found a passion in volunteering for Senior Services for 15 + years, special to her was the planning their annual Christmas party. After retiring, Jeanne and Richard enjoyed traveling with family and friends, from CA to Wildwood, NJ, including annual family trips to Great Adventure. She also passed time with gardening. Her loves were reading and crossword puzzles, later to include "BINGO"!
After Richard's passing in 2000, she moved to Mays Landing, NJ, and developed close friendships in the Senior Center of Atlantic County. In later years, went to assisted living in Woodview Estates in Mays Landing. While there, she renewed her passion of senior care by becoming the President of the Residents Council.
She will be missed immensely by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
Our heartfelt thanks to Woodview Estates and Grace Hospice for the compassionate love and care for mom.
