Born in Neepawa, MB, the only child of George and Freda Mackidd (predeceased). Dearly missed by husband and best friend Fred and her beloved dog, Wiccan. Also greatly missed by all her friends and relatives around the world. She kept in touch with them all. Jean graduated from the University of Winnipeg in Geography but found her true calling in Human Resources. She worked in that field in Edmonton, Coquitlam, Vancouver and the RD of Comox Strathcona. She was a true people-person with a unique sense of humour. She helped many, many people over the years both professionally and personally. After retiring she spent a lot of time volunteering in the community and kept involved in local organizations.
She received excellent care and compassion from the staff in ICU at St Joseph’s Hospital but in her weakened condition the pneumonia became too much for her.
In lieu of flowers donations to your local SPCA would be appreciated. Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
