Dear Bill and family
I was so saddened by the news about Jean. Denny and I send our deepest sympathy to all of you. Jean was certainly one of a kind and you both had such a long romance. I remember you two in junior high school being a couple as well as our old neighborhood on Wabank Rd. It’s wonderful to have those memories and I hope they help you in the months ahead. With sympathy Denny and Debbie Rineer…..Abel

Dear Bill & family – I offer you my deepest sympathy as you mourn the loss of dear Jean.  I was a childhood friend living one block over on Rolridge Avenue.  I can remember sitting with “Jeannie” on a blanket under the tree on her front lawn in the summer and learning to knit.  Of course, I knew her parents, Leo & Arlene as well.  I remember being invited along to the “fireman’s farm” South of Lancaster during the summer of 1966, leading up to 8th grade, and meeting my future husband, Victor DeMascolo.  Victor’s father was a fellow fireman of Leo’s in the city.  It was so much fun there, especially the pool.  In the fall of 1967 I went to LCHS and Jeannie went to McCaskey but we remained friends.  I was a bridesmaid when she married Bill. – the reception was at the VFW at New Dorwart & Union Sts.  We kept in touch after that – I remember visiting the two of them at their apartment in Gordonville and then the birth of their first child, Stacy,  We lost touch over the years, as people do, but every memory I have of her is a good one – I remember, after being out of touch for years, she somehow learned that I was experiencing a very difficult time in my life, and, out of the blue, she called me to offer her concern and support.  I never forgot that – she didn’t have to pick up the phone but she did and that speaks volumes as to who she was – thoughtful and caring.  I know what a difficult time this is for all who knew and loved her as I lost the “love of my life”, Jere, in 2018.  I wish you peace and comfort as you make your grief journey.  I take comfort in knowing that Jeannie lived a full and beautiful life and that she now rests.

Your pain and suffering is over and now you are at peace, Sis. You are with the Lord and Mom and Dad, as we praise Jesus for that. I will always remember the fun times our family had together-our days at the Fireman’s Farm, camping at Tent City on the beach, and who can forget all the great parties at Mom and Dad’s. Sending my love, thoughts and prayers!
