  1. Sorry to hear of this lovely ladies passing. Have good memories of spending time with her and Joe and family in their home in Pueblo Colorado in 1964. They welcomed a newly married couple to spend time with them. So gracious and loving . RIP Jeanne.

  2. Dear Jackie and entire Tilley family; I am so very sorry to hear about the passing of your sweet Mom. She was so kind to me over the year’s and particularly the summer of 1974 before our senior year. She welcomed and took care of me as if I were just another one of her own. As others have noted, she always had a smile and was so calm, no matter what type of drama we provided as teenage girls can do!!! Being part of the Tilley family that summer is something I will always remember fondly. Jackie, I always thought you looked like her but seeing her when she was a beautiful young lady, well the resemblance is amazing! My prayers and much love to you all at this very difficult time.

  3. So sorry for your loss. I remember driving. with Aunt Henrietta and
    Uncle Jim for my first visit to Co. Probably the late ’60’s. We stayed with you.
    JoAnn and her then boyfriend took me to Co. Springs and Estes Park.
    Maybe Judy went with us. What a day! Your mother was such a great
    cook and hostess. I don’t think anything ever bothered her, she always seemed so calm and always had a smile. Didn’t make it to Pana often but
    enjoyed their visits when they came to the farm. Remembering her with great fondness.
