On behalf of AAUW Sheboygan, I would like to express my deepest sympathies on the death of your mother. It sounds like she was a very active person who enjoyed life. She will now be able to continue that enjoyment of life with her family members that passed before her. Peace to you and your family Jean.

My aunt Edie and uncle Geno were lovely people and may they rest in peace and love in God's kingdom where I will see them again along with my beloved mom,Janice and father,William Jerving.

Douglas Jerving

Thank you Dear Aunt Edie for always loving and caring for my family, your brother William D. Jerving's sons and daughters, and all your grand-nieces and nephews from him. You have met all my children, but I think only my oldest, Rachel, remembers you. Now you and my Dad and my Mom as well, are finally able to see one another again in the Joy of our Lord Jesus Christ. I was glad to have several years of Christmas cards and letters passed between us. I miss you, but we will all see you again soon. Agape en Christo! Come soon Lord Jesus our Savior.

I have such fond memories of her she was always smiling. She’s now in a special place back with her husband.

Terry Zimmerman

My deepest sympathies to Jean, Scott and Glenn, and your families. Edie (and Geno) treated Pam and me like members of their (your) family. They were very generous and loving to us. Love and prayers for you all. God bless.
