Sending sincere condolences to all of Jean’s family... I met Jean at Geneseo and we became friends. Jean was unique in that she was quiet and introspective ,yet also loving and kind to everyone. Jean was able to share her limitless love throughout her life with people in need and with animals. She rescued many cats and loved them and cared for them. I believe she also rescued many people. I had the honor of walking with Jean during her illness and I was with her during her last hours on the earth. We grew very close during this time and I will forever cherish the memories I have of Jean. I witnessed her love and respect that she gave to all her caregivers no matter how much she was enduring at the time. Her mercy and spirit of hope and love was inspirational. Jean and I spoke of God and prayed together many times. I rejoice that now she is in heaven and resting in the peace of eternal life. I will miss my dear friend, but I know we will meet again one day. You blessed my life, dear friend.
Sending my heartfelt condolences to Jean’s family...
To know Jean Pietroboni was to be blessed and lucky. Jean and I met in college and she was one of my dearest friends. Our reconnection years later (along with our circle of friends) remains one of the greatest joys of my life. Jean was one of the most accepting, compassionate and courageous people I have ever known. And she was effortlessly funny as hell. It is no surprise that these qualities were front and center even at the end when her physical strength waned but her spirit and resolve were as strong as they had ever been. Her peace was truly found knowing that each of her beloved pets were placed in loving homes to be cared for just as Jean had cared for them. Jean and I shared some text messages in her last week and in place of our planned phone call I recorded a voice message that was read to her. I told her that I loved her and that when she was ready she would be in the arms of angels. I shall grieve for my friend, be thankful that her suffering is over and hold the warmth, memories and absolute joy of our friendship in a special place in my heart, forever.
May you Rest In Peace dear Jeannie.
