Jean was fiercely independent and never complained about her circumstances. Her family was her life. She and her husband opened their home and hearts to many foster babies through Catholic Charities in the late 60’s, in addition to raising their own children.
Our heartfelt thanks to the staff of St John’s Home - 3rd floor Hastings and Barb C from Optum Evercare for the loving care and friendship they provided Mom over the last 17 years. It means the world to us.
Per Jean's wishes, there will be no calling hours. A Memorial Service will be held to celebrate her life Monday, November 27th at 2:00 p.m. at St. John's Home Chapel, 150 Highland Avenue, Rochester, NY.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Children Awaiting Parents, 274 N. Goodman St., Suite D103, Rochester, NY 14607 or at CAPBOOK.org.
