Remembering Jeanne Bice


We are saddened to hear that Jeanne Bice, the founder of Quacker Factory, has passed away.  The thoughts of all of us here go out to her family and friends at this difficult time. Jeanne's creations first appeared on QVC UK in 2003 and have proved ever-popular. Her passion will be sadly missed by all who knew her.

    I am so very sorry to read of Jeanne’s passing. I adore her products – and own quite a few. I’m sure that Heaven is a brighter, sparklier place now that she’s in it. She and her team have definitely brightened up my wardrobe. God Bless her and her family; my thoughts go out to them.

    Oh I am so very sorry to hear the news about Jeanne Brice, I have to say she sort of liberated me! I bought one of her creations and had so many comments I bought lots more. Not bad for someone who always wore very conservative clothing! I reached 50 and suddenly Jeanne was there saying go for it!
    I would have loved to have met her and hope her family will take great strength knowing how much she was loved by so many!

    So sorry to hear of the Death of Jeanne Bice, I know we never saw her actually in Britain but the clips she recorded for her customers over here were always upbeat and fun, Just like the Lady herself and her designs. Thank you for the Fun and Fashion Jeanne, Rest in Peace. Much Love and Deepest Sympathy to everyone who knew this Lovely Lady x

    I am so very very sorry to hear of Jeanne Bice’s demise. How very sad everybody will be to learn of this. I do hope it doesn’t mean there will no longer be Quacker Factory. A selfish comment I know, but she has been a godsend to the larger lady because her 3X is really a 3X.

    So sorry about Jeanne’s passing, and sending condolences and kind thoughts to her family and friends. Jeanne had such a lively spirit, as demonstrated in Quaker Factoy clothes. I do hope Jeanne’s liveliness will live on, for one thing, in the Quaker Factory clothes. She was an inspiration. Quack! Quack!

    I was so shocked and sad to read about Jeanne. Her lively spirit has cheered so many of us up over the years. But that spirit will live on in all our sparkly, fun clothing and I’ll think of her whenever I reach for one of her great tops (of which I have many)! I hope Quacker Factory continues her legacy for many years to come.

    how very sad to hear of the death of jeanne bice a lady who struggled in life to keep her family and came up with the lovely fashion clothes of quacker.Jeanne has brightened up the lives of millions i am sure here and over the pond it was not long ago that i saw one of her recorded messages and thought how lovely to go to that much trouble for her customers let’s face it girls we spend millions in our high street stores and never receive any personal messages from any of the retailers so it was such a joy to buy jeanne’s clothes i will go on wearing them for as long as they are available.Goodnight Jeanne and god bless you and all your family and friends at this very sad time rest in peace.

    So sorry to hear this news. I never knew her but she helped me pull myself up by my bra straps and get the fun in fashion. Quack, quack Jeanne and god bless and thank you for all the fun.

    I believe that Jeanne did appear on QVC in the UK, I’m sure she presented her range when I first started to buy her tops. The Xmas tops I have bought always get lots of comments. I loved her fun outlook on life, wish more people were like her!

    I was very saddened to hear of Jeannes passing–I wasen’t aware of the seriousness of her health-she skyped one day on QVC after her hospital stay and I thought she was well. I loved watching her and hearing her stories–she was an exceptional person–God Bless You Jeannie and thank you for all the wonderful moments I spent watching you on QVC.—
