October 6, 1919 – March 29, 2022
It is with great sadness that our family announces the loss of our Mother, Grannie and Grannie-G. She remained engaged and alert for her 102 years for which we are grateful.
Jean, who was predeceased by her husband, Gerry, passed peacefully after a short stay in the Peace Arch Hospice tended by their compassionate staff.
She leaves behind her loving daughters Lynda Brown (the late Jack), Bobbie Farquhar (Donnie) and Arlene Morris (Jamie) and 7 adored grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren.
Our 40 strong clan benefitted from Mom’s positive and cheerful outlook on life; her sage advice only when requested and her unwavering belief in us.
Mom was born in London, England and spent most of her youth in Edmonton, later moving to Vancouver where she met her beloved Gerry. For many years, Jean lived and volunteered in White Rock, BC, and worked in several small business environments while participating in a variety of activities in the community.
She loved to cook, sewed beautiful dresses for her daughters’ special occasions and knitted sweaters for her grandchildren. Later she was fortunate to spend the next two decades in a townhouse complex where family, friends and neighbours infused her life with affection, generosity and laughter.
Our family offers heartfelt thanks to the many Fraser Health nurses who helped her over these last few years as well as the caring and helpful staff at Whitecliff Assisted Living..
If you wish to make a donation in memory of Jean, please do so with your favourite charity. A family graveside service will be held at a later date.
