    I am so sad to hear of Jolene’s passing. I LOVED her smile. Whenever or where ever I saw her she would always give me that big grin she had. The years of bowling with Jolene was so much fun!!! If my son was going to be a girl, I was going to name her Jolene, because I loved her bright smile. Rest easy Jolene, you sweet person.

Based on the wonderful tributes to her already expressed in these condolence messages, I’m not the only person who recognized how very special Jolene was to all who were blessed to know her.
