  1. So sorry to learn of the passing of a former “Richwooder” and many thoughts and prayers will be offered for the family

  2. Tom Mayne says:

    Larry, Chris and Cathy,

    My deepest sympathy to the three of you and your families in the loss of Jeannie. She was always full of personality and joy in my fond memories of growing up on “the hill”. My Mom and Dad always enjoyed your company. While it has been many years since we have seen each other, we count it joy to have had a relationship with your family!

  3. Graduated from high school with Jeannie and spent one semester with her at Glenville. She was a thoughtful, caring friend and will be missed by many. What a reunion she is having with her parents and her sister, keeping things stirred up I am sure. Love you Jeannie, save me a seat!

  4. Larry and family. I am so sorry for your loss. Jeannie was a very special lady. I consider the time I worked for you at Allen Blueprint a very special time of my life. When Jeannie would stop in, she always made me feel special, and always took the time to make sure I was doing ok. The conversations we had, I will always cherish. I know you will always have a hole in your heart, with her not being here with you. May God comfort you and your family during this horrific time of your lives. Also, may the very special memories comfort you at this time as well. If you need anything at all, please let me know. With love and prayers. Patricia (Trish) Morris
