To the entire Guiot family...
I send each one of you my sincerest sympathies and pray for your healing as a family. Jeanne was a very special person in my life, she made me a priority for as long as she was able... I was never an after thought or a burden... I can honestly say I know she loved me completely and as I grew and life changed... she loved each of my children and my husband because she loved me. She has had a profound impact on the woman and mother I have become. We had a number of conversations over my life time about life but most revolve around being an “only” and relationships with parents and others because of that fact. She supplied me with great wisdom of what life was to come as an only and how to transition once you were all that you had left... I take that with me everywhere I go and use her knowledge to help navigate through this portion of my life. I was blessed when my parents chose “The Guiots” as my godparents... they took their role in my life very seriously and I was so lucky to have had such caring people to help raise me. I pray she is reunited with her family and her beloved Joe... as well as my eases my mind knowing someday I too will see them all again. Please stay in touch... please know the love for your family is rooted deep within me and I will always hold the memories I had growing up in my heart... love you all Jackie❤️

Donna Burns Tucciarone, Bill and Dolores Burns - 04/24/2019

We are so very sorry to hear of Jeanne's passing. Your parents were fixtures at the 5pm mass at Assumption and were part of such fond memoreies growing up in the parish. My mom especially enjoyed sharing grandchildren stories when she worked at CVS and Jeanne would be in shopping. She had a great smile and that picture captures exactly how we remember her. We are very dissappointed that we will be unable to attend the wake and mass due to a previous family committment that morning. Please accept our deepest condolences on the loss of such a special woman. And please let Barbara know her "friend Donna" from the Assumption sends her a great big hug.

I was so sorry to learn of Jeanne’s passing. She was such a wonderful and caring person. I remember when she invited Judy and me for dinner when Amy was at Brown. Her warmth and hospitality were so kind. Felt like we knew her forever. Please know that my prayers are with you
