Jean was my Grandmother's cousin. I have many fond memories of the times we got together as a family, particularly as a young child when Jean and my Grandmother would share stories of their many trips together. They were always delivered with gripping detail and dry humour. (and often a memento from the destination) In later life is was lovely to see Jean at my sisters wedding. I picked her up from Albury ride and took her back the next day and we spent the 2 hour journey chatting about the old times, a journey I will always treasure with warmth as we both clearly enjoyed reminiscing. May she rest in peace.

My childhood memories of Auntie Jean were as cousin and travelling companion to Grandma Beadle. I remember hearing how they had gone off to "far-away" places and they would return with photos and wonderful presents. We all gathered at Charlotte's after one of these such travels and all the grandchildren waited excitedly as Auntie Jean and Grandma gave out presents from Canada. Amongst other things, I had a red t-shirt with Banff, Canada written on it. I wore it to school and proudly told my Headmaster that Banff was the Capital of Canada - whoops! There were also some beautiful native American-Indian gifts and I received some red beaded slides. Ella wears them to school now, as her uniform is red. They are as good as new! Since my parents divorce, my correspondence with Auntie Jean was mainly written. She kindly always remembered us at Christmas and Birthdays and she came to our wedding. It was good to see the pictures of her at her 90th birthday. It is sad to hear of Auntie Jean's death but my lasting memories of her will be of her generous heart and companionship to Grandma.
