Kind, Compassionate, Empathetic, Caring...There are not enough "good" words to describe her.

This memorial website was created in memory of our Mom, Jeanne Crisci. My mom was a very independent and strong woman. She loved her children and granchildren dearly.  After retiring from teaching she volunteered at her church, had a huge passion for sports, loved the outdoors, animals (esp. cats) jogging, book club, coffee and more.  She had a particular way of doing things...her way, the right way.  She was loved by many.  She was a fighter until the bitter end.  At 12:02am Nov. 24, 2017, surrounded by her four children, she lost her battle with cancer.  We lost our Mom, our caregiver, our best friend, but Heaven gained an Angel.  May you rest in peace Mom...We Love You and you will live forever in our hearts.

"I didn’t know Jeanne but wanted to share some words of encouragement with your family.  It’s never easy to lose our loved ones.  It’s fitting that 1 Corinthians 15:26 refers to death as an enemy.  We can be comforted in knowing that in the near future God will fulfill His promise in Revelation 21:3,4 that He will wipe out every tear from people’s eyes and eliminate death and pain.  Until that time- deep sympathy- Julia"

"Jeanne was my dear friend for 25 years. She was supportive, kind and very caring. I admired her determination to seek more education and became a nurse and teacher. Jeanne's four adult children expressed their love for her by taking care of her in her last days with love and tenderness. I will always miss her presence in my life. May she rest in peace."

"Dear Mom,

I've loved you since the day I was born.  You loved me, you cared for me, you comforted me and you raised me with unconditional love.  

You were thoughtful, kind, loving, sincere, helpful, courageous and so much more.  You taught me to be independent, alive, smart, responsible and ethical.  You were always there for me.  You supported me in the darkest of times.  When I was down you comforted me, when I was hurt or sick, you took care of me. You never failed me.  You sent me thoughtful cards and gifts.  You loved flowers, and birds, and cats and Jesus and pretty things.  You displayed them all over your house and life.  You were brave, and strong, and happy and generous.  You wanted to live.  You always did what you could to keep your family safe and protected; you took care of us.  You didn't want to die.  As I cried to you "God needs an angel" you fought to stay alive. You didn't want to die.  When I was taking care of you 2 1/2 weeks before you passed, it was only easy for me because I loved you so much; watching you take your last breath will be the hardest thing I'll ever do.

My heart bleeds for you, my body aches for you, my eyes and soul cry for you.

I love you, Mom, always!

Your daughter,

"I wish you had more time and I wish you weren't in pain.  But I know you are now in a better place and I can't wait to see you again."

"God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference."
