  1. What sad news. I will always remember her cheerful disposition at Tri Psi events and her spunky attitude. Jean, you will be missed.

  2. Very sad indeed. Our TriPsi sisters were there at Jean’s Scottish wake: Olive, Jocette, Eileen, Lawrie+husband David, Sharon and myself. There were funny stories conveyed by Rhoda, Jean’s daughter. Tara , Jean’s Tridelta daughter, from USA was there too. Jean had a unique personality. Jean, you will be missed by your TriPsi sisters!
