  1. It has been a few months ago and I just found out my friend Jean passed away. I worked with her as an AT&T engineer. She was a very special lady and I will
    miss her.

  2. I am sad to discover that my friend Jean Browning Byrd has past away. I tried to call her, but her phone was disconnected. I was hoping she hadn’t past. I just found out for certain just now when I asked Google by putting in her name and her funeral came up.
    Jean was my boss and friend at AT&T. I miss her very much. She is a very kind person.
    Can someone please mail me one (1) of her funeral programs since I live in Indiana and could not attend her funeral. I live at:
    J. Elaine Wilson
    1801 Millers Ct.
    Noblesville IN 46060
    My phone is 682 252-0014.
    I hope the family is doing well.

  3. Thank you Jean for being a great friend to our mom (Faye Bollen).
    Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

    Those we love don’t go away,
    They walk beside us every day,
    Unseen, unheard, but always near,
    Still loved, still missed and very dear.
