PAIN – Jean Catherine (nee Graham)

October 24, 1918 – May 31, 2010

It is with great sadness that the family of Jean Pain announces her passing on Monday, May 31, 2010. On her 91 year journey through life, her family and friends were a constant source of joy. We remember her for the great pride she had in her family, for her strength of spirit and for her lifetime of love and humour.

Jean Pain was born in Red Deer in 1918. In 1941, she graduated from the University of Alberta and married Thomas Pain. Jean Pain’s spirit was really felt at Sylvan Lake, and our best memories are of her there, enjoying her family, the water, the birds and her wild roses.

Jean was predeceased by her beloved husband, Thomas Pain and by her three brothers, Ron, Jack and Ted Graham. She will be sorely missed by her son Michael Pain (Pat); and daughters, Kerrie Pain (Gary Finley) and Julie Francon. She will be remembered by six grandchildren, Jeff Pain (Alyson), Tania Wong (Sam), Jill Razzell, Eric Finley (Star), Sara Finley and Theo Francon (Lindsay). Grandma Jean will be also remembered fondly by her great-grandchildren, Aria, Sana and Jamie Finley, Kyle and Thomas Pain and Briana and Keenan Wong.

Relatives and friends are invited to a Memorial Service at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Wednesday, June 9, 2010 at 2:30 p.m. Forward condolences through In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes in Jean’s honour may be made directly to The Alzheimer Society of Calgary, Suite 201, 222 – 58th Avenue S.W., Calgary, AB T2H 2S3.

In living memory of Jean Pain, a tree will be planted at Big Hill Springs Park, Cochrane by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH Telephone: (403) 276-2296.

    My family have many happy memories of my “Aunt Jean,” even though she didn’t want to be called “Aunt” by someone of my age:) To my cousins Michael, Kerrie and Julie and their families, I send my warmest thoughts on the physical passing of Jean; happily she will live on in our memories and in her greatest legacy: her family.

    Love and deepest condolences from Sandra in Prescott, Ontario
