I'm so sorry for your loss. Jean was a good egg. She'd worry for others but never mentioned her own struggle. RIP Jean.

From the minute we met in 1978, we were laughing together within the first hour, Somehow, we just connected in the most wonderful, silly way. We just brought funny stuff to the suface of each other, both of us prior to meeting, had a bank full of funny memories from 78 back to 59, but, nothing compared to the cracking up we did for so many years. Been thru trying to have babies.....(fun) and then actually having it happen.....twice for me, three for her....all 5 .....boys. fROM Pyrotector, to the Dorchester triple decker, to Brockton to East Bridgewater.....the love and laughs were always a phone call away. I will never, ever forget you Jean, but....you knew that. <3

I was so saddened to hear of Jeannie's passing. Her second bout with cancer, she never complained, she just moved forward. She was one of the strongest women I know.She and my cousi, Joe Gambino, left a legacy of love in their three fine sons. She left us too soon, as did Joe, but they are both free of pain and resting in peace. They say God takes the best ones young...They certainly were that. We have another angel in Heaven...
