Jean was a kind spirit who enjoyed life to the fullest. Her courage and stamina carried her through difficult times. I came to know Jean in her later years and enjoyed her company at dinner parties and Thanksgiving dinners along with her sister Dianne and her husband Bob. My condolences to her entire family in this time of loss.

Dear Grant & Janis. What an amazing journey Aunty Jean experienced. I hold many special memories of her, growing up across the street at 31 Northcrest Road in Etobicoke. Many times sitting at your kitchen table or spending time with her in the backyard when she went for a swim and getting her a Gin & Tonic when she came over. I remember her talking to me about how to clean the back of the bathroom taps to properly folding plastic grocery bags. She passed this process to my mother who insisted thats how they had to be folded because Aunty Jean told her! Despite thinking this was a waste of time - I now fold the bags the same way. She now joins her family and friends in Heaven and will watch over us. Thank you Aunty Jean for years and years of special moments and memories. Love Karen Ann
