I was sorry to hear of the recent passing of Jean. I enjoyed her company at the Sterling Center where a few of us engaged in Water Aerobics. She was such good company and full of energy. Your family will miss her sense of humor and love for her many grandchildren of whom she was so proud . Jean was a class act . Memories of her will help to ease the loss of this fine lady .

Jean Walsh, you were one of my idols - your wit, intelligence and continued pursuit of your education. I will always remember “your love for dogs” - ha! And I will NEVER forget you. The town of Beverly will not be the same without you. Love and prayers to your family.
