Jean and I were friends before we even started school. We lived across the street from each other. I loved her trampoline and her parents, Earl and Goldie and sister, Joanne! I believe we were in the 2nd or 3rd grade when I jumped off the teeter totter, and Jean fell and broke her arm. Jean was thoughtful and quiet. I'm sorry she has died.  Her Nevada Street friend, Maris Collins Schad
