  1. What a wonderful picture of Jean as a young woman. I used to work in the front office at Taylor and Jean would come up and sit. She was quite a character! She was a real favorite of mine. I also need to mention the love and commitment Marsha had for her Aunt Jean.. Bless you,Jean..Rest in peace..
