One of my first jobs was at Dunkin Donuts with Jean. She was an excellent trainer; strict and insistent that everything be done well. But she also had a great sense of humor and kindness when we needed it. She took such pride in her work and great joy in her playtime. I'm sure her family and friends will miss her dearly. My prayer is that you find comfort in your cherished memories and with the hope God gives..."that there is going to be a resurrection."(Acts 24:15)

Deepest Condolences to Jeans family. I met her while she was working at Dunkin Donuts on Thomaston Ave, in WATERBURY. My job was next door at the welfare office. She always served everyone that walked through that door with a smile. She was so very nice to me. I’m sure she will definitely be missed. Family keep your head up. God bless you all.

I worked with Jean at Burger Chef on North Main St. in Waterbury back in the 60's. We became very good friends over the 2 1/2 yrs I worked there. RIP Jean...and my heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to her family.
