August 11, 1937 – May 4, 2013
Jessie Williamson passed away at the South Calgary Health Centre after a brief illness on Saturday, May 4, 2013 at the age of 75 years.
Jessie was born in Swan River, MB to Bill and Minnie Ingram. Her father was a teacher, so she spent her childhood in various towns throughout Manitoba. Jessie then graduated nursing school in Morden, MB and began her career at the Minnedosa Hospital. It was there that Jessie met Ellis who was serving with LdSH (RC) army regiment. As a military wife for over thirty years, Jessie had the opportunity to live across Canada and the Middle East. Jessie enjoyed traveling around the world and made friends wherever she went. She loved to spend her winters RVing down south. Jessie loved to garden, create a wide variety of crafts, and loved to play and watch curling. Most of all she was proud of her grandchildren and loved spending time with them. Jessie will be missed for her love, kindness and compassion, her strength and great sense of humour.
Jessie leaves behind her loving husband of fifty-three years Ellis Williamson; her children, Patti (Carmen) Phillips, Brad Williamson, and Ted Williamson; her grandchildren Grant and Emma Williamson, Matthew and John Phillips; as well as her sisters Jean (Arnold) Fortune, Hazel (Doug) Grossart and Wilma (Dennis) Garlick; and sister-in-law Edithe Williamson.
