We are very sad to hear of Jean's passing. Bill and I knew both Walter and Jean at St. Elizabeth's. Our best memory was of visiting their home over in Kelley's Corner to discuss renting our condo in Florida. We had a delightful time, especially when Walter described to us how he wanted to "SLING" his tv to S. Hutchinson Island. Well, he really did it! They had a great time in Ocean Village, and it was right before we had to sell it - or we think they'd have gone again! Jean and Walter were delightful people and we loved seeing them at St. E's. God Bless them both! Sue & Bill Hart

It has been my very great pleasure to work with Jean at the Acton Food Pantry this year. A longtime volunteer, she showed me the ropes with kindness and an ever-present smile. She loved her weekly suppers with her sons and shared cooking tips with me. She was so proud of all the Acton Senior Center had to offer and invited me to come and tour it with her as my guide. I'm sorry we never got the chance to make that happen. In my short acquaintance with her she showed herself to be a woman with a big heart and a willingness to pitch in and make this world the kind of place in which her children and grandchildren would thrive. She will be sorely missed.

Jean and I often sat together at Mass, and she was always ready to lend a hand in serving coffee down in the Church hall after a Vigil. I'll always see her gentle smile and remember her kind words. I know how much she missed Walter, and now they are together forever. Rest in Christ's peace, Jean. Bernice Higdon
