Condolences to the Family

My condolences to Jessie’s surviving family. I only saw Jessie at Kline family reunions and occasionally at the big house on the hill if dad and mom went to visit her and Paul, but I certainly remember her well. So many years ago. 
Sincerely, Joanne M (Bob and Thelma Shaub’s daughter)

So sorry to hear of Jessie’s death.  We were best friends when she worked for the County Engineer.  She was such a lovely, funny lady.  Her and Paul were special people.  I am so glad that Jessie was part of my earlier life.  RIP, Jessie.

Oh Jessie, I remember all the times Mom and I spent with you and Paul at the big house, don’t remember the address and the trip to the mountains.  I was so sad to hear of your passing.  And when Mom passed you and Paul came over with a dozen donuts and we spent the evening watching TV.  So many great memories.  Love, Sandy.
