I was very saddened to hear of Jeanette's passing. I have been her dental hygienist for better than 30 years. I will always remember her as a sweet kind lady with a gentle spirit. I always looked forward to our visits. There was no questioning her great love for her children. She spoke of you all often. I will miss her. My deepest sympathy to you all.

So very sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. I loved seeing her at the Heywood Gift Shop....she would share stories about her children and their families. She was a wonderful and loving woman and her memory will carry you throughout your lives. Love and healing hugs to all of you,

Dear Walsh Family,
My sincere condolences to you in the passing of your Mother. She had such a positive affect on those who were lucky enough to meet her. Many, many years ago your parents were good friends with my parents, Evelyn and Pete, so us kids were friends as well. I too knew Mrs. Walsh from the gift Shop at Heywood Hospital where she greeted all who came in to shop with a smile and friendly "How are you today?"
While you must be deeply saddened, find joy in the memories you shared, the laughs you had, and all the wonderful things she taught you about life.
