Condolence from Doug and Grace Brown on May 31st, 2018 7:10 PM

Sorry to hear about Jeane’s passing. Her enthusiasm for life will surely be missed by all who knew her. I remember the wonderful times at the cabin in Westbank where she seemed always up for an adventure. Blessings to all those close to Jeane.

Jeanne was a lovely person. She was always very kind and thoughtful. We will truly miss her at our Sunday breakfasts, at badminton on Tuesdays and Thursdays , and at our other get togethers. We are deeply saddened that she will no longer be a special part of our lives. She brought a ray of sunshine to the lifes of many people and had a heart of gold. I write this we tears in my eyes and with an appreciation for our fun times together. Jeanne you will not be forgotten.
Affectionately, Amy and Steve Watkins (Abbotsford, B.C.)

I have only known Jeanne for 5 years but it was a joy to have had the time to enjoy the friendship that we had. We had a friendly little competition a badminton in Abbotsford that we enjoyed. Jeanne always had that big smile on her face. I received an email from Jeanne the day before she passed and her spirit seemed to be so positive that it was such a shock to hear the news. I will always remember you Jeanne.

Indeed, Jeane was an extra special lady! So kind and thoughtful – I have no doubt that she was the favourite aunt to so many. I will not see a candy sucker without thinking of her story of planting (jelly beans?) outside, to grow into suckers for the kids at Easter.
And her sense of humor – yep – it was wicked!! Always active, always with friends.
I am so honored to have known Jeane as my friend!

Condolence from Erwin Uhl on June 6th, 2018 1:16 PM

I was lucky enough to get to know Jeane well and can only say she was one of the finest people ever in my life. Badminton, breakfast, a great sense of humor. I could go on and on. I will miss her smiles and laughs, she was the best. Rest in peace, Jeane!

Condolence from Shirley and Stan Tam on June 6th, 2018 1:36 PM

I only met Jeane a few years ago. She was doing a perfect downward dog in our yoga class as I struggled to not topple over. She was the one who encouraged me to try badminton where I ended up meeting more wonderful people. Even though we were at different levels of play, Jeane was always there to include me in a game or two and introduce me to the rest of the gang. When my husband joined the group, she took him under her wings too.

Throughout a difficult October when my husband was recovering from a simple surgery gone wrong, Jeane kept up a continuous line of support through emails and telephone calls. She always managed to make a bleak day just a bit brighter.

I last saw her in April at which time she said her cough seemed a bit better. We made plans to golf as we had in previous summers once the weather was better.

Jeane was no-nonsense and independent. She spoke often of her Alberta family and it was obvious that she was proud of her nieces and nephews.

I will miss her brilliant smile and sense of humour, her willingness to “coach” without making it seem like I needed help, and her witty remarks on the golf course.

Jeane, I hope you find a fun yoga class, a welcoming badminton group, and a beautiful golf course without sand traps and water hazards up in the big blue skies.

I will never forget you, Jeane.

Condolence from Pat McKimmon on June 9th, 2018 8:49 AM

Jeane was a great friend and neighbour. I always enjoyed her upbeat outlook and sense of fun. We shared many laughs. I will miss her dearly.
