Jean Jones was a wonderful and colorful lady. I met her as a driver for Meals-on-Wheels. She was so proud of her home and would show me her treasures each time I came. She is missed dearly.

I remember Jean well, though I only met her over my back fence. One afternoon she shared a time when none of the houses on E. Angela were built and she'd sit in her backyard and look down the slight slope, over the meadow and on out to the East Bay hills. She also told how some of the trees in her backyard were the "children" of specimens planted when Phoebe A. Hearst plantings were being added. I moved to North Carolina almost three years ago and hope some of those fine old trees are still standing. Jean was proud of her roots and very independent! I remember her love of the many birds that called her trees home and of her cat friends. So sorry to hear she's gone but it is wonderful that at least the front facade will be kept.
