McMURCHY – Jean Bernadette (nee Armstrong)

Sadly and with broken hearts, we announce the passing of our dear mother and sister on Thursday, March 10, 2011.

Jean exemplified all of the wonderful qualities of a beautiful human being – love, honesty, and a deep dedication to family and friends. Some of her favourite times were spent travelling with Janis and Wayne, and weekends in Banff with Terry and Roland. An enthusiastic volunteer, Jean generously shared her time with the Canadian Cancer Society, The Salvation Army, and for the past twenty years, the Royal Alberta Museum.

Predeceased by her beloved husband Clyde, Jean leaves to cherish her memory her daughters Janis (Wayne) Meckle, Terry (Roland) Pollard, and her sister Connie Armstrong.

At Jean’s request, there will be no funeral and flowers are gratefully declined. Please forward condolences through The family would like to express their sincere thanks to the gentle and caring staff at Foothills Country Hospice and request all donations in Jean’s memory be sent to the Foothills Country Hospice Society, PO Box 274, Okotoks, AB T1S 1A5.

In living memory of Jean McMurchy, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403)243-8200.

    Dear Terry, Janis, and Connie,

    I was so very sorry to hear of the loss of your dear mother and sister, Jean. I will always remember her as a very kind, thoughtful person with a link to my family’s history in Kamsack. In December when Connie and I were very tired after dealing with the flooding in our apartments Jean took us for lunch, and I felt so much better after the break.

    My thoughts are with you at this sad time.

    Hi Janis,
    I saw the notice of your Mom’s passing in the paper. I just want to extend my heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. I know how broken hearted you are at this time, I lost my Mom 7 years ago and it is still really hard some days. I remember your parents showed me around Edmonton almost 40 years ago when I first moved here to nurse. If you ever want to contact me, my email is
    Take care

    Dear Terry,
    Your Mum was one of a kind. She was generous, funny and a great volunteer and friend. She led a full life and I have been missing her walking for the last few weeks. I used to see her from my computer room window. Both Bruce and I hold you in our thoughts and prayers.

    Dear Family,

    I wanted to pass along my sincere condolences. Jean was my “book stamping Queen” at the Royal Alberta Museum. Jean was always eager to help in any way that she could, but more importantly she was such a kind and gentle person.
    She will be greatly missed.
