    Dear Family of Jean Fawcett,
    From My childhood (long ago) I recall visiting at Allison & Jean’s home with my parents. Her kind, dark brown eyes and smile are unforgettable. She was a “scholar” of all aspects of running a dairy farm and keeping records, and an excellent help to Allison and family. I extend my sincere sympathy to all family members.

    Sincerely, Ruth Dukelow

    What sad news to receive, when we heard that Jean had passed. Jean was a wonderful friend and cohort both within the Holstein fraternity and in the community. We will certainly miss her visits to the Roosteraunt. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    Auntie Jean was always super to us and we will miss seeing her on our visits to Winchester. My sister and I often felt that we had never met a more intelligent woman than Aunt Jean.8

    Mom and I wish to extend our sympathies to the Fawcett family in the loss of your mother Jean. Mom and Jean go back a long way, and I remember their efforts at the annual Church plant and bake sale, and especially Jean’s delicious pumpkin pie….”made with real cream”, as she would say. God bless. From Tina and Florence(Timmins) Cairncross.
