Jeanne was more than just a star in the sky; she was the brightest star in the sky! Her credentials included kindness, love, fun and sparkle; she saw the best in everyone and was the first to give thanks and compliments. I was lucky to have traveled with her to the place that held her heart - Siena, Italy - along with Michelle Borrillo and Carmen Smith. We followed Jeanne around the well-known walled city, enjoying the majestic scenery, while she expounded on much of the history. We walked the cobblestone streets, ate gelato, shopped, bought jewelry, bought clothes, visited historical sites, ate more gelato, shopped for larger clothing and hiked down a steep hill to our farmhouse villas - all arranged by Jeanne. Jeanne's laughter was such a part of every adventure. In 2019 Sue Merritt arranged a trip to New York City with Jeanne, where, once again, the four of us (Jeanne, Sue, Michelle, and I) walked all over NYC, attending The Metropolitan Opera, Lincoln Center, Radio City Music Hall, Moulin Rouge on Broadway, Tavern on the Green, Rockefeller Center, Wall Street, makeovers at Saks Fifth Avenue, and the opening night of Tina Turner, the Musical, as well as eating at fantastic restaurants. Jeanne was so entertaining, so funny and such an enjoyable presence during this trip. Her laughter was uplifting and enduring.
In the last few years, I often ran into Jeanne in Building 3 at Phoenix Mayo, where, even in the midst of difficult treatments, she had the glimmer and the gleam!!
You were a terrific friend, Jeanne, and will always be celebrated for who you were!
I will miss you.
