My sincere condolences to the family of Ms. Jeanette Moore. Ms. Jean, I called you Lovely Lady, because that is what you were. You were my client who soon became my friend. We had so many things in common. You always brightened my day with your beautiful smile and keen sense of humor. We laughed together and at times we cried together but it was and your family filled my days with a lot of joy, fun, and unforgettable times, it never felt like work, but more like an every day family affair. My thanks to the Donovan and Moore families for welcoming me into your family. ...Ms Jean, I will cherish the memories and never forget you, my friend....R.I.P......Gwen Quailes

Sending hugs to the Donovan family and thinking of you all. We won't be able to make the service on Saturday, but will wear some green anyway! :) A donation will also be sent to St. Thomas's Grounds Committee in her honor.

Jeanne and I met in high school. We immediately became fast friends. I loved her sense of humor (sometimes at my expense)and admired her infectious energy. When I married and moved to California, we kept in touch by mail and later email. We only met again in person twice in the next 70 years, but it was just like we never were apart. I will miss her terribly. God bless and comfort her family.

Dear Danny My heart dropped when I read about Jeanne in the paper the other day. My dad always spoke so highly of her; and you for that matter. Him working for you all those years at DuPont and Jeanne being the secretary there. I feel as though I've know you two all my life. Having lived in Academy Hill since 2010, I had no clue you lived at the bottom of our street. So happy and thankful we stopped to talk to you that day you and Jeanne were gardening. Little did I know that you lived in there. I felt blessed and it was a sign from my dad. May Jeanne rest in peace. I'm right up the street should you need anything. My deepest sympathies.

Sending love to Kathy on the death of her mother. Kathy was an essential part of Phyllis and George Nolan's life and I knew Kathy thru them. Moms are special and I extend my gratitude to the woman who had Kathy as a daughter. She sounds remarkable.

Oh Danny and family, I am sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure to work with Jeanne for many years. First, I helped her chase down Tom's articles for The Carpenter at St. Thomas. Then I worked with Jeanne as St. Thomas's treasurer when she worked diligently to record pledges with Barb. Finally, I started scheduling the Property Committee meetings and Jeanne always came, often with Danny who taught me to drive 4WD on a workday. I am grateful to have known her for more than half my life. I will never forget that twinkle in her eye when something amused her. She was a gem and is sorely missed.

I remember when I was really little coming to your house for St. Patrick’s Day and everything was green. Eggs, pancakes, orange juice loved hanging out with the Donovan family. You are a fantastic lady and you’ll be missed.
