Jean was born in Worcester, daughter of Julius and Helga (Erikson) Tremblay. Jean lived in NY for 33 years before returning to Grafton in 2015. Jean was compassionate, kind, caring and a great giver of gifts. She painted gorgeous ceramics and offered some as presents to many family members. She enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. Jean and Bruce cultivated an amazing flower garden for over 20 years. Every morning their ritual was to sit on the patio, watch the birds, and look out at their garden. For the last decade she was gripped by dementia, yet the disease never took her smile, laugh, and the brightness in her eyes. She is now free in eternity…
