Dear George and family,

I am so saddened to hear of Jeanne's passing. We became good friends at Battin High School and subsequently, worked on Reunions together. I will certainly miss her, as I know you all will. She was a great person and I'm glad I called her my friend.
I was always jealous of her outstanding mathematical ability, since I have none!!

May she rest in peace and watch over your family and all of us from heaven!!! with love and sympathy, June Sankus Loughrey

My deepest sympathies to the Decker family. Jeanne was a unique and gifted professional and assisted me greatly in my first term as Mayor of Clark. Jeanne lent her expertise to the community and freely shared with me her advice and recommendations, all to the betterment of the Township. Her bright personality, combined with her knowledge, was always appreciated.
