  5. To the Towers family,
    We have fond memories of our neighbour of fifty years.
    Jean was often a backstop when I ran out of an important ingredient for something I was cooking or I needed some valuable advice.
    We were shocked by her sudden passing.
    Our sympathy to you all.
    From Jan and Laurie Shaw.

  6. Such a beautiful and fitting send off for Jean who was always so devoted to her family, her friends and the church. I have so many wonderful childhood memories of Jean’s warm welcome and her scrumptious cooking when we spent our summer holidays with the family. She always pulled out a stack of games to play in the evenings! My thoughts are with all the family. Jean will be sorely missed.
