Support for VanHouten Family

Jeanne is the dear wife of Cecil VanHouten. Cecil is Bartlett Tree Experts-Irwin PA's most senior Crew Leader, teammate, and mentor.  Cecil has been with Bartlett for over 20 years, and his son Victor worked with us for some time, too.

Jeanne was diagnosed with cancer 2 1/2 years ago, and sadly, she passed away on October 6, 2018. It has been tough on the family, because Jeanne was their rock. We set up this campaign, to help Cecil out, so he can spend time with his loved ones (esp his sons and grandson). He has used up all his vacation days due to hospital visits, and needs to prep for Jeanne's Celebration of Life which is on October 20, Saturday, 4-6pm at Our Clubhouse in Greensburg, PA (this event is open to all who would like to come).

Let us support Cecil--our friend, colleague, teammate--and his sons Victor Chris and grandson Tyler, and their whole family n this most difficult of times. You are not obligated to give financially. Words of support and prayers are appreciated. Thank You in advance for your generosity. God bless you.

Here's a tribute to Jeanne by their eldest son Victor on 10/06/18:

Today at 4:20 pm, one of the greatest women to walk this earth was taken too early. After 2 1/2 years of fighting cancer mom passed away. She was the strongest, most hard working, caring, loving individual that you’d be lucky enough to have met let alone live life with! I can not describe how excited I am for her to be free of pain and look down on all of the ones she loved because there were many! If you ever had the chance to meet her, you would understand everything that not only I, but my family and friends, have had a chance to cherish in her lifetime. You would understand what it was like when she was around! She put countless hours of parenting in, grand parenting, being a wonderful wife, a coworker, and a friend to many! Life is so priceless and you never know when someone or something can be taken away from you! Cherish everyone and everything because life can turn in an instant! She always taught me to be kind to everyone you meet, you never know what they are going through! Not only will I live my life for the fullest but she would want the same for everyone! I will miss you mom, more than you can imagine. Please look down and watch over us! You can now RIP. I love you!

Please know that Cecil has sole access to withdraw from this campaign. His whole family appreciates your support! Thank you!
