So sorry for the family’s loss. My mom (Olyve Spicknall), often spoke fondly of Jean and I remember visiting when I was young. May Peace be with you and memories comfort you.

Dear Bill, Suzanne and family,
We were so sad to hear of Jean's earthly passing but rejoice with you that she is with Jesus. Her smile will always be remembered and the kind manner she had. Loved to hear her tell stories.

I am very sorry to hear of the passing of "Aunt" Jean Grimes. I remember her warm smile always present at the numerous Grimes family reunions on Thanksgiving as well as her husbands strong presence. It is hard to morn the passing of such great people from their generation. My hope is that the traditions will pass on to the next generations . Peace and love to all her family. Fondly, Lisa (Grimes) Carrette

Thinking of you and your family. Jean never missed sending us an Anniversary card as she said she always remembered the date as it was Oscar's birthday. She was a very kind and thoughtful person and will be missed.

Jean was one of my best friends and I cherish the memories I shared with her at University of Maryland and all the years after that. I will miss her.
