    Our deepest condolences to our dear Wayne, Laura, Leslie and your extended families on the passing of your beloved mother Jean. We remember her always smiling and having a
    quick and sassy retort ready at a moment’s notice to add friendly spice to any conversation. Wendy’s strongest memories are of yummy boiled dinners on St Patty’s Day. Her recipe with the mulled spices to make the house smell lovely lives on in our home each year. ❤️ Lisa’s strongest memory was her warm smile and immense love of a full home of guests, family and canine companions.

    She was cherished and will be very fondly remembered. 
Thinking of you all at this sad time but also grateful for knowing a wonderful lady. We share your grief on the loss of a beautiful soul. 
May she rest in peace.

    Love, Wendy G & Lisa D
