  3. Grandma Jeanne will be greatly missed. While she was not my real Grandmother she always welcomed me with open arms and was a positive and uplifting woman to be around. You couldn’t feel like you didn’t belong around Grandma Jeanne. She always had a smile and treated you like one of her own grandkids. I know my wife and daughter both miss her dearly as well. It’s tough to lose her but we are glad she can be be at peace and back were loving husband Grandpa Joe. God bless her!

  6. Learning of Jeanne’s death brought back to me pleasant memories from the many, many years she worked with us at Greece OB/GYN. She was a huge asset to our practice. Her warm smile, gentle concern for the needs of the patients as well as the needs of the doctors and staff, her devotion to the practice are just a few of the things she did with us. I left the practice in 1986 but ,honestly, have thought of her many times since. She made me happy. Just wanted you to know.

  7. A Dear neighbor and friend from Port Bay and a fellow golfer. Gordon has dementia but please know we extend our deepest sympathy to the whole Walczak family. She will be remembered fondly. Love to all Grodon and Beverly Swain

  8. So sorry to hear about your mom’s passing. She was a wonderful friendly woman! I know how much you will all miss her but also find comfort that she will be reunited with your dad. Prayers for your family at this sad time for you all.

  9. Dear Walczak Family, I am saddened to hear of your Mom’s passing. I have many fond memories of your Mom, most OLM related. One that stands out was my mom and her coaching the girls basketball team. I was always at the practices and games and was the official basketball chaser!
    The second was her and my Mom’s presence as we practiced at Mooney for Father Whalens Golden Jubliee.

    I hope your memories of your Mom will sustain you during this difficult time. May she rest in peace.

  10. from Helene Myers and Family
    We send our deepest sympathy, love and prayers to all of Jeanne and Joe’s family. I will always remember the many wonderful times we shared at Port Bay and Florida with them. God Bless you all. Sorry that I am unable to be with you now.

  11. Our sincere sympathy to Jeanne’s family. We were good friends with Jeanne and Joe for many years , but lost track of Jeanne after Joe’s passing. Jerry worked with Joe at Kodak. Jeanne’s obituary described her perfectly, she loved her family and was a lovely person. We are saddened at her passing and wished we had tried to locate her.

  12. Dear Walczak Family,

    I was so lucky to call your Mom my friend. I miss those chats on her Bay porch, and all the laughs I heard when you all were there. Mostly, I will miss our phone conversations to just catch up, talk about Bay stories and see how you all were doing. She was so proud of you all and rightfully so!
    She will truly be missed by all she touched in the Family and Friends. She was Special!! Know your Dad was waiting for her with open arms. That makes her passing a little easier for me.
    Peace to you All!

    Ann Marie (& Rick)Cavallaro
