Sorry very sorry for your loss. My daughter and son-in-law lived next to her on Madison. Shelley and Adam Claybaugh. They really loved her and Bill. They moved in January, but continued to see them. They really wanted to attend her funeral, but their newborn son is in Children’s Hospital and they are living at the Ronald McDonald House for now. They wanted me to tell the family that she was a great person and neighbor. Take care, Love Joy (Broadtone)and Dennis Spriggs and Shelley and Adam Claybaugh

I am so sorry for your loss. Jeannine lived next to my daughter and son-in-law, Shelley and Adam Claybaugh, on Madison Ave. They moved last January. They really loved her and Bill and tried to see them when they could. Jeannine helped my daughter a lot with hemming things for her. She just helped her hem some curtains for Shelley and Adam’s new baby about a month and half ago and they visited with her then. They were so sad to hear about her accident and passing. They really wanted to attend her funeral to pay their respects, but they have been living at the Ronald McDonald House in Columbus since Nov. 17th. Their newborn son had surgery 7 hrs. after he was born and is having more surgery this Friday. We and they send our deepest symphathy to your family. She was a very wonderful lady. Love Joy and Denny Spriggs and Shelley and Adam Claybaugh
