PAUL A WILLIAMSON
REST IN PEACE MY SISTER IN LAW AND FRIEND.I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU.
To Jean’s family:
Jean and Jack were wonderful and helpful neighbors! Jean loved to crochet and bake. Jean had a laugh and smile that would brighten anyone’s day. I will keep my memories of you and Jack close! Rest in peace!
I knew Jeanne years ago when her brother Ernest was married to my late sister Eleanor ( Ellie) back in 1956. They divorced later on. She was always a kind loving person who I always remembered. My condolences to the family.
Jean Williamson came to me to offer to babysit my daughter soon after her birth (to my delight). From 3 months old, Jean became Amy’s second “mom” helping us raise her by treating her as one of her own. As a new mother, she often provided guidance to me. Because of Jean, Amy had two supporting and loving families including brothers and sisters. She sustained a life long relationship with Amy until the day of her death. I will be forever grateful! Rest in Peace among the angels.
I remember Jean teaching me how to knit many years ago. Sorry for your loss of such a kind person.
