With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Jean, our wife, mom, grandma, sister, aunt, cousin and dear friend after a brave battle with cancer. Loving wife, soulmate and best friend to Doug for 52 years this June. Cherished mom to Steve and Kristen, Mike and Mirvat, Deborah, and Diahanne and Larry. Fun loving Grandma of Olivia and Gavin, Matthew, Maxwell and Mariam, Ashley, Courtney, Laura and Sarah and Brandon and Devon. Great Grandma to one on the way.

Waiting in heaven with open arms are Mom's parents, Frances and Victor, her in-laws Malcolm and Evelyn, grandson Mason, sister Kathleen and Ron, brother Joe, sister-in-law Margaret, brother -in-law Fred. Mom retired from the Greater Essex County School Board where she worked in Accounts Payable for many years. Mom's passions in life included going to yard sales to find treasures, gardening in her beautiful gardens, traveling which included her favourite trip to the East Coast and camping which grew from a tent to a fifth wheel trailer. Her biggest love was always her family, her husband, children, grandchildren, sisters, nieces, cousins and friends. Mom loved us all. In following Mom's wishes, cremation has taken place.
