In sincere sympathy to everyone in Jessie's family. She was such a nice lady and always took the time to talk to me whenever I'd meet her. I will miss seeing her smiling face in church. She will be missed by many. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Hold close all of your wonderful memories of her.

I'll continue to have wonderful memories of Jessie! She loved to make things with rhubarb and came over to my big patch, and I harvested some for her! She always had a smile on her face and a sweet spirit in her! She was a blessing to my heart!

Jessie has always been my supporter and an advocate for her son with his singing. She was so cheerful at the Food Cupboard in Lincoln and as did I she supported the Penobscot Humane Society. Her gaze could make anyone happy to receive her attention.
Love to her was a given she never stopped loving life.
