Dearest Jean, one of life’s treasures. It has been a joy to share many a natter with you over the years. Calm and kind in the face of life’s ups and downs, I have always found you a source of great wisdom. We share an appreciation of life’s small pleasures. The light in your eyes when surrounded by a gaggle of small children (including my own) was contagious and radiated happiness to all nearby. It was a beautiful sunny morning here when I got the message from Karen that you had gone to sleep overnight. I went for my morning run and imagined you flying up in that lovely blue sky with the fluffy clouds and sunshine, chatting with your lovely dad about the weather. The bluebells were just coming out and it felt like a Jean kind of day, full of happiness and sunshine. You leave a wonderful legacy of your lovely children and their families. I have enjoyed all of their company at times over the years but I truly value the special friendships I have with both of your daughters. They have inherited your strength (although they don’t always know it!) and they do you proud. You leave this earth a better place for having been in it and you will be deeply missed. Sleep well. Xx


In memory of a very dear friend.

Jean looked after both my boys in their early years and I’ll never forget her patience, love and kindness even on their bad days. A wonderful person that I consider a privilege to have known and be able to call a friend and even more of a honour that she looked after my children when I couldn’t. It’s hard being a working mum but knowing they were being cared for by Jean was the next best thing to being at home with me, or actually better! Will miss those early morning texts on their birthdays, she was always the first to remember, even 15 years later. I’m so glad she had her faith to keep her strong and to help me through a tough time too. RIP Jean, will miss you always ❤️

Jean, you were such a lovely human being. You always made time to chat with me, and Niamh loved having you around at school. It’s clear that you touched so many lives and were deeply loved throughout the community. I’m utterly heartbroken that you’ve gone xxx
