How do I even begin to describe the impact my Aunt Jeanne has had on my life?  Her laugh is forever tatooed in my heart as being one of the most hearty and rich that I have ever heard in my life.  Boy did she love a good joke. I will miss her picking up the phone and saying, "Hello, sweetheart,"in her sassy and raspy voice. She always had a funny story to share or an idea or question about how the boys and I were doing.  But, God help the sorry soul who tried to call her during her M.A.S.H, hour however. That was her Alan Alda time! 

Every job she held seemed to last for decades.  She must have been so fun (and capable) to have at the helm of the bank, the photo lab, and the docs office. She kept the Moretti family history alive for me.  She was the keeper of stories, pictures, and tales.  Every Christmas she'd write an orginal poem or limerick in her cards to me, or send a birthday card with her token $5 bill.  You made us all feel so special, Aunt Jeanne.  I will miss our visits on your bright and airy porch looking out over the sound and feeling the warmth of you love and arms around me.  Thank you for being such a loving aunt and mentor.  Love your niece, Lisa Moretti

Jeannie was such a lovely Lady. We worked together for many years. Always a joker, she would always brighten up a lousy day.

I’ll miss our visits with Jeanne on the porch. It was the best seat in the house! Jeanne was so good to us. I was happy when I could stop in, on my many trips from New Hampshire. Thank you for all you did for Jim. Thank you for making us feel welcome in your home.
