Jean Roy McKenzie

June 26, 1915 – April 13, 2015

Jean McKenzie (nee Gowans) left us April 13, 2015, to join her husband, Les McKenzie (1967), son Ian (1984) and brother Jack Gowans (1990) in heaven. Her positive attitude and love of life were an inspiration to all who knew her. Jean was born in Moose Jaw, SK on June 26, 1915. She received her RN from Moose Jaw General Hospital in 1938 and moved to Swift Current. She met Les, married in 1940 and gave birth to son Ian in 1943. She moved to Regina after Les’s death and then to Niagara Falls to be near Ian. After Ian’s death she moved back to Regina. In 2010 she embarked on her last great adventure by moving to the Comox Valley.

Jean is survived by numerous nieces and nephews, and friends Ross Moxley and Joan Skingle. We will miss her.

At Jean’s request there will be no funeral service.

Thank you to all the caregivers at the Comox Valley Seniors Village and St. Joseph’s hospital, and to Louie Adell.
