  1. Jeannie will surely be missed —– now she will join her husband and many other loved ones, especially her friend Elenor Sutera ! When Jeannie was healthy, she was so kind and considerate–visiting her sick friends !! I can remember when our friend Eleanor was in the North End Nursing Home, and I happen to be there at the same time, Jeannie was so very kind to both of us—she would come visit and bring a cheerful and uplifting greeting every time she entered the room !! I for one, will never forget the smile she always put on our faces !!!! May you REST-IN-PEACE Jeannie—All my LOVE JG

  2. JEANNE LANZA WAS IN A CLASS OF HER OWN. SHE WAS QUIET, RESPECTFUL & A VERY
    KIND HUMAN BEING. SHE WILL BE DEEPLY MISSED & MAY SHE REST IN PEACE.

  3. Jeanne was always kind thoughtful and loving….every Christmas I wear the pin she gifted me more than 20 years ago…I cherish it and think of her often…She was a good Mother and Grandmother, Neighbor and Friend and will be missed by whoever knew her. Lord hug you tight for me Jeanne and help your Family cope with the epic loss of you. Love, Maryann Deveau
