February 10, 1914 – September 15, 2011
With heavy hearts we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt and great aunt.
Jean is survived by her children , Sharon, David (Margaret), Ken (Mary) and Cheri (Glen) and grandchildren Shawn, Natasha (Mark), Nathan, Chelsea (Jesse), Cameron, Carla (Kyle) and Caitlyn, great grandchildren, Taiea, Luke, Quinn, Windsor and Carlena. She was pre-deceased by her husband Henry (Tommy) in 2000.
Jean was born in Lipton, Saskatchewan and spent the majority of her life raising her family in Delta, BC. Jean never stopped learning, among the many ventures that Jean pursued was becoming a nurse who served in WWll, she became a social worker, teacher, a political science major as well as going on to establish Delta Private Hospital with her Husband Tommy.
Jean was an amazing woman who lived life to the fullest. One of her greatest abilities was being able to listen and truly hear what people would share with her. The most important thing in her life other than her family was her love of playing the piano and the joy she received from sharing her gift with others.
A sincere thank you to the wonderful staff at the CV Seniors Village residential care.
A celebration of Jean’s life will take place at Comox Valley Funeral Home, 1101 Ryan Road, Courtenay, on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2011 at 1:00pm with Rev. Ted Hicks officiating. In lieu of flowers a donation to St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation would be appreciated.
