I had the privilige to meet Jeanmarie over a year ago through a mutual friend, Beth Lewter. Beth, Jeanmarie, and I prayed often, laughed, and spent many wonderful moments over the phone. I have been blessed and my life will forever be changed by her friendship. Her compassion for others in spite of what she was dealing with was quite amazing and taught me alot about how we are to love one another.

My condolences go out to Tim, her sons, her mother and other family but I do rejoice because she is now in God’s perfect loving care with a brand new body and enjoying eternal life with Jesus Himself!!!

Tim, I had the pleasure meeting Jeanmarie while I worked as Collections Clerk for the Pittsboro Water Dept. She was such a sweet and beautiful person. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to get to know her. You and the kids will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Just to let you know that many prayerful thoughts are with you and your family. Its been awhile since I’ve seen or talked to you and although I never got the opportunity to meet Jeanmarie I do recall the conversation and the beaming glow on your face when you married Jeanmarie. Cherish those memories forever!

Condolence from Karen Brown on July 23rd, 2009 12:00 am

I am sorry to hear about your wife I can remember us talking some at the beginning about her finding out and how she was a fighter, it has been along time since we have spoke from the time of the chicken plant but my Mom would see her from time to time when she would come in and pay the water bill Debbie Kotoris and she would tell me she saw her. Words can not express how sorry I am and my prayers go out to you and the family as well. Take care and God Bless.

I just heard today about your wife’s passing. I just want you to know that I am thinking of you and your family at this time. Although I didn’t have the pleasure of ever meeting her, I knew when you spoke of her that she was a unique person and that she was loved by you.

It was a pleasure and privilege to work with Jeanmarie for the years she spent with us at the pharmacy. I can not remember her ever start or end a day without a smile, a good word or a positive outlook. Jeanmarie’s courage and strength should be an inspiration for all who had to pleasure to know her.
My prayers and thoughts are with you and the boys.

Condolence from Cindy Wright on September 9th, 2009 12:00 am

Tim and boys, I met Jeanmarie at Rex Cancer Center in early 2008, where I was a volunteer massage therapist in the infusion area. We formed a quick bond when we discovered we both lived in Pittsboro. I eagerly arrived each Tuesday knowing her bright smile would light up the room and her sweetness would brighten my days. I was able to visit her at home last spring and we shared an afternoon and one last hand massage, which she treasured so much. I am just today learning of her passing, and my heart aches. You are in my thoughts and prayers, as she spoke so often of you. Truly you were the lights of her life. God Bless you and keep you in the shadow of His wings.
