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.
