    Martin and Jeanine Pond were permanent members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints ward (congregation) when my wife Amy and I started graduate school at Purdue in 1982.. Along with so many other permanent members, they ‘adopted’ us and treated us with love and warmth. We felt like we belonged there, and we cherish our relationship. We pray Heaven’s comforting hand to be with Bro. Pond and the family.

    Our family has fond memories of Mrs. Pond from our children’s years at Village Nursery School. She maintained order with kindness, taught me through example that “the clock says” is a great way to avoid disagreement when time to change activities arrives, and provided our youngsters with pleasant classroom experiences before we started home education for each. We now use “the clock says” with our young grandchildren. Sweet memories live on.

    To Bishop Martin Pond and family,
    We send our most heartfelt condolences on the passing of Jeanine, a most Christlike lady and remember with fondness our 4 years spend at Purdue with the Pond family being one of the reasons. We felt so included and loved from the start when we arrived in 1971. Throughout 4 years we were ministered to not only by Bishop Pond but often by Jeanine. Our family was invited over to the Pond Home for dinner, yet that was not all. Jeanine invited Pat and 4 little children to sit with her during sacrament meetings for months as our husbands were on the stand and this way Jeanine could help with the other children if one of the children needed to be taken out of the meeting She also came one day to our home with activities and told Pat to go do anything she wanted as Jeanine would watch the children for the morning. Another time she watched one of our children overnight so Pat could go out of town with her husband to a convention. And there was much more! We felt like family. Each time Jeanine was ever so willing in her service to help at a time when a young mother was at times overwhelmed. Yes, Jeanine has a very special place in the hearts of the Bachmans. We will forever remember Jeanine and her example of caring for others. We mourn with you and send our love to the Pond family. Dan and Pat Bachman

    We did not have the privilege of getting to know Brother and Sister Pond but we do know their son Mike and daughter-in-law Jenny and their family from our years together in the Philadelphia area where Mike and I shared a common employer and we were all part of an extended Church family. Mike and Jenny’s kindness and friendship always made our time together enjoyable and his sterling character was no doubt inspired by lessons learned at the feet of his angel mother. Mike & Jenny – Our most sincere condolences at the passing of your mother/mother-in-law and praying for the Savior’s peace and comfort for your entire family at this difficult parting. With love, Cory and Maria LaBarge

    We have fond memories of Jeanine and Martin. We first met them in 1970 when we joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Martin spoke at our baptism. They would often drive to Crawfordsville, Indiana to speak and teach. She was one of our idols as we saw her love for the Young Women of the Church. And listening to her sweet voice as she sang was always a treat. She and the Pond family hold a special place in our hearts. We are saddened to learn of her passing and send our love to Martin. Tom and Pia Savoldi.
