Jean is an amazing woman who is 96 years young. She has a vitality that reaches through the phone line when she talks and wows you when meeting her in person. It would be easy to mistake her for a woman in her sixties both in appearance and in the way she carries herself.

Jean is widowed but enjoyed a long and happy marriage to a man who was a young widower himself when they met. She helped raise his three children and proudly calls them her own… along with the many grandchildren, great grandchildren and even great, great grandchildren who make up her large extended family.

As a convert to the Catholic faith, Jean has encouraged other potential Catholics. She further supports the church in financial ways and Sacred Heart Southern Missions is fortunate to be one of the recipients of her contributions. She has funded three significant gift annuities and recently purchased a life insurance product which pays us a set amount each month and will pay us a much larger sum after her passing.

Your generous support to our work means so much and touches so many lives. Like Jean these gifts create a legacy of giving that survives long after your death. There are many options available that can accomplish this goal. Which one is right for you? We’d love to discuss it with you!
