During her retirement years, JeanAnn took a part-time job at TJ Maxx and loved shopping there. Before JeanAnn lived in Merrimack, she lived in Hyannis, MA and Deltona, FL. Her favorite place was New England and could see the change of seasons and all the beautiful flowers. She was kind, kind, and outgoing and never met a stranger.
