    To Jean's family: I am sorry for your loss! Jean was a great person. I enjoyed working with her at the Regional Health Office in the 1970s. She had a great personality and could always make me laugh. She did her job well and was highly thought of by her co-workers. You all have my prayers of comfort at this sad time.
