Born in St. Catherines, Ontario on February 6, 1921. Jennie held a number of positions in St. Catherines, working for Osborne Roofing & Siding and Beltone Hearing Centres before moving to Ottawa in 1966 to work with the Federal Government.
She was an active member of the Queen Street and Facer Street Baptist Churches in St. Catherines, culminating in receiving Life Membership honors in the Baptist Women’s Missionary Society. She was also active at the Fourth Avenue Baptist Church in Ottawa.
In 1998, she moved to Comox to spend the rest of her life with her family, passing away in Comox on January 25, 2012.
She leaves behind her son David and daughter-in-law Ruby Osborne of Comox, grandsons Graham Osborne of Calgary and Mackenzie Osborne of Kelowna; and nephew Clair Culliford of Toronto.
At her request, there will be no funeral or remembrance service. Friends are asked to remember her as she was, prior to her short battle with cancer.
A special thanks to the staff at the in-patient unit of St. Joseph’s Hospital for making her last days as comfortable as possible.
