Jean Winters Funeral Fund

On the morning after her 40th birthday, my sister, Jean was walking home when she was fatally struck by a car.

Jean was vibrant and funny. If she loved you, she did it with her whole heart. She loved music, her friends, her cats and tattoos. Jean was an ordained minister who performed marriages for same sex couples.

She would give you the shirt off her back, if that’s what you needed and never ask for anything but your friendship in return.

Funeral arrangements are in the works but she did not have any life insurance. In lieu of flowers, we are asking for help with the funeral/memorial expenses.
