What a dear lady! I am so sorry to hear of Jean’s death. I only worked at Lyn-Clare in Emporium for five years back in the 80s, but Jean and I spoke every year or so since then. She was so strong in her faith and values and a delightful conversationalist. She is missed already. Peace to you, my friend.

To All:
My deepest sympathy. Your mom will be in my thoughts and prayers. I worked for your mom and dad while GF Wholesale was in business. Your mom’s bread was good. I always looked forward to a loaf.
God Bless you all!
