Jeanne’s family meant the world to her and nothing gave her more joy in her life. She was known to sing her way through life and could turn any phrase into a delightful song. She enjoyed summers on Pinehurst Beach in Wareham, especially the sing a long’s on the patio with her close friends. Jeanne and her devoted husband of 72 years, Hugh were most proud of their biggest accomplishment in life, which was raising their nine children with love and respect for each other and teaching everyone the importance of putting family first.
