During the short time i knew her, Jean always made me feel like i was part of the family. Although we lost touch over the years, I will always remember fondly. She was truly a special woman. My deepest sympathies to the Gruber family.

Aunt Jean was the kindest person, always had a smile and made the best pie. I’ll never forget the great Thanksgivings we had as a kids, and she was such a huge part of that. Peace to all.

I have many memories of my dear cousin Jean. From time when I was very young and we lived down the road from her father's farm and many more as we both grew older.
