In memory of our friends who no longer are with us ...

Jean Bowers

I have such fond memories of Jean.  The many times we played bridge together, and also as team mates with her and Newt.  The times we traveled to tournaments - Chicago; Omaha; Minneapolis.  Our dinners togethers.  Our cruise trip to Alaska and panning for gold.  Picking cherries at the Brewsters.  Jean wearing my dress when she married Newt.  

She always had a smile on her face and embodied the caring special education teacher that she was.  She was a devoted daughter to Lil and I loved seeing that relationship.  She was so proud of Doug and rightly so.  He grew to be an amazing young man. 

Our condolences to the family.  Jean will always have a special place in my heart.
