The picture of Jean I just added is the one taken for the Hartford Church directory. It is the beautiful Jean Walker I and most of us remember. With our church closing, many of our memories will be of worshipping together as a church family on Sunday mornings. Jean will be missed by so many who loved her. Judy Hamilton

We were former neighbors of Jean on Blueberry Drive. She would wave as we kayaked by on Bear Pond and her pet duck would quack a welcome. Her family were always with her. Jean was always so much fun especially when the girls had a night out at the American Legion. She loved the music, dancing, and being with her friends. We all used to play cards and shared many a good story and lots of laughs on Blueberry Road. We will miss you Jean.

Mom so loved going with us to the dances at the Buckfield Masonic Hall or to the Augusta American Legion or to the Jay VFW. She always had a great time enjoying the music and watching us dance. Sometimes surprising us she would get up and dance. And of course Mom always enjoyed the 4th of July festivities at the camp on Bear Pond. Jean, you are so loved and will be missed. Love you.

Whenever we went to vacation at the coast, we would have nightly card games. My Mother would always sit beside me to help me with my poor card skills. Thank you Mother. Love you
