    Had many wonderful times with my mother-in-law Jean Marie and fondly enjoyed many of her unique quirks and passions for life, her gardens, and most of all her frenzied shopping sprees for clothes.
    You will be missed by me and many who knew you.
    ❤ Janine Cole

    Dear Stephen and Bradley,
    We were saddened to read of your Mum’s passing. Your Mum and your Dad (Mr and Mrs Cole) were lovely neighbours and friends to my family. Mum loved working at your parents crèche and Leanne and I loved going over to help and play. Beautiful memories are what we all need to treasure.
    Mum (Mrs Nancy Rotheram) and I are both thinking of you at this sad time.
    – Deb (Rotheram) Bowden

    My sympathies and thoughts are with Jean’s family at this sad time.
    I will miss her many stories but most of her that beautiful smile and our singing together.
    You sang with gusto and animation, making our duets something I will always remember.
    A life well lived and a rest well earned
    Will miss you Jean. x Bev Hood (nurse Thompson House)

    My dear and greatly loved Aunt Jean,
    not enough words to convey my admiration and praise for Jean, she was a remarkable woman who inspired me. She loved her family and selflessly helped others.
    She was bridesmaid at my parents wedding and then came to help me when my parents were sick.
    Always a smile, and her beautiful red hair, Jean was a light that stood out.
    Due to my own immobility I wasn’t able to travel for the funeral but my thoughts and best wises and love to you my cousins Stephen, Brad and your families.
    I cherish the memories.
