I always call people like Jean an earth angel . She spread her warmth and her sense of humour to everyone & made them all feel all the better for her actions. She will be so greatly missed. I pray for God to spread His love over all the families at this sad time & remember all the precious times you had with her. RIP Jean ..

Thinking of everyone in the Phillips, McBride and Schaeffer family. We send our love and heartfelt sorrow at the loss of Jean. We are very fortunate to have known such a truly loving and caring individual. She touched the hearts of everyone she knew and was always a welcome part of our family. We are sorry to not be able to attend the funeral as we are down east with our family at this time. Sending love and condolences. Linda and Bob Dalrymple, Leah McIntosh and family.
