My heart is filled with sadness to learn that Jeanne has passed away. She and Dick opened their home for me in Camp Tecumseh when I was an exchange student from Norway in Delphi back in 1982. I have called them Mom and Dad ever since. I got to revisit them in 1993, shortly before Dick passed away, bringing my son for them to meet. The kindness and love that they both showed me has meant a lot to me. Jeanne and I kept in touch through annual Christmas letters and more lately through facebook. Mom Jeanne will stay in my heart forever. May she rest in peace.

So sorry to hear about your Mother’s passing. She lived next to my Mom, Marge, at Bickford and told me she was always keeping an eye on her. If she heard a noise during the night she would get out of bed to check on her. I always enjoyed talking to her. Diane

I knew Jeannie and Dick through camp Tecumseh. They were the kindest most welcoming people. Sending much love and prayers to her family as they celebrate her beautiful life. I’m sure there was a joyous reunion in heaven!

Tanna and I extend our condolences to Jeanne’s family on her homegoing. I had the privilege of serving as Jeanne’s pastor during her years at Kalamazoo Wesleyan/Lighthouse Community Church. She was a precious lady, and a wonderful sister in Christ. She loved the Lord, her church, and her family deeply. We moved from Kalamazoo in 2009, but were able to stay in touch with her through Facebook. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

I met Jeanne when my mother was a resident at Bickford. Jeanne was always so kind and sweet to both my mother and to me. She always had a smile and would check up on my mother to make sure she was doing ok. I so appreciated her befriending my mother and spending time with her. My mother passed away but Jeanne left a positive impression on me and I have thought about her from time to time even though I no longer live in Michigan. She was truly a sweetheart.

Even though I'm not related, I have known Jeanne for so long (over 50 years) that I feel as though I am. She was the epitome of grace and class, a fine example of having a strong faith in Jesus, She will be missed and is with the angels. RIP,

I knew Jeanne from volunteering at Lending Hands. I absolutely loved her kind spirit. She always had a smile and kind word. She was a dear. Sorry for the loss but what a legacy she leaves behind. God received an angel.
