D. Jean Kujaneck, age 75, of Eagle Harbor Road, died unexpectedly on October 9, 2013 in Buffalo General Hospital. She was born on June 1, 1938 in the Town of Barre to Zigmont and Gertrude (Wildschutz) Baskevich and was a lifetime resident of this area.
While growing up, music became a major part of her life as she served as an accompanist for the various chorus groups in school. Jean's love of music, in particular the piano, remained with her throughout her life as she served as the accompanist for the Albion Middle School Chorus. She served as Elder, Choir member, and accompanist for many years at Barre Center Presbyterian Church where she was also a member of the True Blue Ladies Aid Group. She was a member of the Next Steps of Orleans Ministries where she often served as the accompanist for the worship services as well. Jean loved any kind of family gathering. She was the "rock" of her family and would let everyone know that her grandchildren were her pride and joy. As a loving wife, mother and grandmother, Jean ALWAYS had a smile on her face.
