    Jean Greene was a “Team Member” of tremendous value to those of us who compile and record the history of Raytown Mo. at the Historical Museum.
    She loved her town so much and knew so many people and the events that shaped it. She was a walking encyclopedia and loved teaching others about it. On a personal note, Jean will never be forgotten by us. John and Charlotte Belger

    Jean’s passing is a tremendous loss to all of her friends, and especially her friends at the Raytown Historical Society. Her hard work, attitude, and knowledge will be difficult, if not impossible, to replace.

    Camp Fire Girls was Jean and my forte during you girls growing up years. Memories galore, she so dedicated to CFG as she was later in life with the History of Raytown and the volunteering at the Raytown Museum. She had a great mind and loved her Ken so much. She can’t be replaced and shall be sorely missed by many. Blessings on you and your families.

    I just wanted to send my condolences. Jean was wonderful and I will always remember seeing her with a smile on her face. I could tell how happy she was to be around her family. All my love to the McClelland’s and Krivolavek’s.
