Jean was a lifelong parishioner of St. Anthony of Padua church and was retired from the Union Endicott School district where she worked at George W. Johnson school as a cook to serve many of the children in the Endicott area. She loved the kids and all her coworkers. Cooking was one of her passions. She loved cooking at home always trying new recipes while making the family’s favorite meals. She loved cooking with Gabe. She also loved sewing, she would always be at the sewing machine hemming pant legs for her “kids” or making clothes for her family. She and Gabe enjoyed playing Santa and Mrs. Claus for years. They visited various Local Organizations and made many children happy and excited during the Christmas season. They enjoyed participating in many activities in the community and doing things for others. The most exciting thing for her though was spending time with the love of her life, Gabe. They were inseparable. One could not do anything without the other. They are finally back together again for eternity. May God bless both of them.
