Jean was so sweet and caring. Our families went to Ocean Isle beach together once and we joked about my maiden name was Oliver too and my mom’s name was Martha like her. She did sewing for us which was greatly appreciated. I will miss her! Sincere condolences to her family and anyone who was privileged to know her.

Bob and I were really saddened to read that Jean had passed away. When our paths crossed in Riesbeck’s she looked and sounded as she always does, happy and a delight to share a conversation. We will always remember her as a beautiful, caring person. Our prayers are with her family.

Jean always had a smile and a kind word and we always shared updates on our boys who went to school together.
