From Beth Brand...

So sorry to hear about Jeanine’s death. Sympathy to Dward and to her family. Jeanine and I not only were in a string quartet together for several years in Maryland, but she went with me to a chamber music worship in Vermont one summer. We performed together there as well as enjoying a beautiful drive up and back. Making music together makes for great friendships.

My sincere condolences to Dward and the family. Jeannine and I were musical friends and colleagues throughout her time in Maryland. We taught together at Walkersville Middle School and were both affiliated with the Frederick Symphony for many years. She was expert in the field of string pedagogy, a master teacher, and of great help to me early in my career in music education. More importantly, Jeannine was my friend, and I will miss her.
