    fargo ndI am so saddened by this news. I got to know Jean very well when I would come in to Sheyenne Crossings and visit my girlfriend Brandi who is a receptionist there every time i came in she would give me a hug and she would always say how is our friend today and I would always reply fine and I would ask her if there was anything she needed help doing and she would reply not at this time but if i need something i know where to find you. I am going to miss seeing Jeanne when I come in to Sheyenne Crossings. Rest In Peace Jeanne. Quennon

    Oxnard CAJeanne and I were childhood friends from Overly, ND
    . We also sprang from the same great grandfather, Nazaire J. Grandpre, me through Anna Grandpre and she through Louis Grandpre of that large (14 children) family. Me, and my wife Ginny, had the pleasure of visiting with Jeanne when on a trip to Fargo several years ago at the home of Dale, also a childhood friend, and Betty Svingen. We appreciate this opportunity to make this connection with Jeanne, a lovely lady, and our expression of sorrow to all.
