Bob and Rydosz family. Jean will be missed by everyone who knew her. She was one of the most generous ladies I’ve ever met that loved her family so much. I am so glad I got to spend my teenage years in the Rydosz home Jean taught me so much about from cooking, baking pies, canning, making jelly, freezing garden vegetables and so much more. There was nothing better than spending a holiday with the Rydosz family always starting the year out with Jeans delicious stuff pork chops with chestnut dressing mashed potatoes and creamed lima beans and of course homemade apple pie ( I still cannot master). I remember eating garden potatoes with every meal cooked many different ways along with squash. In the summer every Sunday was Mikes special hamburgers and Jeans baked potatoes. What I wouldn’t give to go back and have one more Sunday funday with Mike and Jean and listen to a good story about life way back when. It was a privilege to know and love Jean and sad that she is gone but I am sure Mike was waiting for her with his arms wide open arms. Prayers and hugs to you all for the days ahead. Love Becky
