January 6, 1930 – July 6, 2012
It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of Jean Burgess (nee Randall) of Calgary, on Friday, July 6, 2012 at the age of 82 years. She passed peacefully surrounded by her loving family.
Jean was born in Sarnia, ON and lived the last thirty-nine years of her life in Calgary. Jean became a teacher prior to marrying Bill, her husband of fifty-two years. Once her family had grown, Jean continued educating as a teacher’s aide with the CBE.
Jean is survived by her daughter Pamela (Chuck) Morris; son Darryl (Susan) Burgess; and grandchildren, Krista and Scott Morris, and William and Caelan Burgess. She was predeceased by her husband, William (Bill) Burgess, whom she tirelessly cared for after his stroke for twenty-two years.
