Jean passed away peacefully with her loving family by her side. She is predeceased by her loving husband John of 48 years.

Amazing mother of Sandra (Joe) Dixon, and Ian (Donna) Bolton.

Jean will be missed by her brothers Bill (late Grace) and Jack (Connie) Morrison, in laws Alex (Alan) and Marjorie (Andy). Lovingly remembered by nieces, nephews and many friends.

 

She had a great sense of humor, and brought sunshine into the lives she touched, so many people have commented on how easy it was to get to know her, and love her. Jean was a Leafs and Jays fan and a Huge Snoopy collector, we are sure she is up in Heaven talking to Charles Shultz about her love of Snoopy.

 

Jean was a long time Correctional officer with the Ontario Government, member of the Royal Canadian Legion, the Parry Sound Pipes, Drums Ladies Auxiliary and coached community living baseball. She was a loyal friend and respected member of the Parry Sound community whose friendship broke the generation gap from the very young to the very old.

 

This tough lady fought and beat cancer, to be 5 years cancer free, unfortunately, her cancer had returned, in the end, but she never gave up, and offered her strength to others combating the same disease.

A stalwart member of the business community in Strathroy for 40 years, from a sole-practioner to a partner in BDO (Strathroy), and in the volunteer community in Parry Sound after his retirement. A member of Kiwanis, the Beaver Lodge, Order of the Eastern Star and Shriners meant his circle of friends was very large.

Most currently he was a past member of the Boards of the McKellar Public Library and the WPSHC Foundation and a volunteer at WPSHC information desk. He will be missed by the people whose lives he touched even if only recognized by his actions.

He has gone to join Shirley, who he missed greatly when she predeceased him in 2014. His children and their spouses, Leslie and James, Bentley and Lynda, Andrew and Susan wish to thank all the medical professionals, especially Dr. Woodhouse and his associates, for their many years of kindness and support.  Rey spent his last holiday season with his children and grandchildren, Reyden, Dante, Emilie and Dominic and we will have that memory forever.
