  5. I knew Jeanne through Journey of Faith Builder’s class. She was so faithful in coming to Church and always had a smile on her face. She was a friend to my mother, Vesta Kidder, when my mom moved back into the area in 2013. They sang together with the Praise Singers and enjoyed going out to Tuesday lunch at Spires. She will be missed greatly but so happy she is in the presence of God and her family who went on before her. We will see you again some day Jeanne!!!
