Their three children Pat, Connie and Donnie were delightful kids always bringing much joy to their parents. Jeanne was a homemaker who enjoyed painting, crafts, bridge and finding good deals while shopping. While her children were young she was active as a Brownie troop leader, involved in the school PTA, and helping in a Catholic women’s group. After Don retired, they spent many happy days in their motorhome enjoying the California beaches.
