Jeanne Kirkby was a kind, organized, intelligent, common sense mother and grandmother. Family was very important to Jeanne she was always supportive and gave good advice no matter what the problem. She was very involved in her grandkids lives pushing them to be better, to get an education and was always a good role model. She was a strong person with a positive outlook on everything. Jeanne loved to listen to classical music in her special chair and read her books. She played the piano and loved music. Jeanne was a serious card player especially with Bridge and offered to teach the grandkids how to play every time she saw them. Jeanne always had a least 2 dogs around to keep her company on her walks in the back garden. She loved to travel and saw a lot of the world when she was able. She was active in her community and church and will be missed by both.
