  1. Carolyn, Sue and family,
    I am very sorry to hear of the passing of your mother, Jessie. I know that she had a very full life but you will miss her very much and it is never easy, no matter how prepared you think you are for the inevitable. I will not be home in Calgary for the Celebration but my thoughts will be with you.

  2. On behalf of my Mom, Pat Devolin and I, we offer our sincere condolences on the passing of your Mom and Grandmother. We continue to bowl with Rotary Friends Bowling League where I understand Jessie bowled for some 40 years and was also a past President. She had quite the sweet personality but was always a determined competitor and great athlete. She’s been missed since she stopped bowling with us and joining us for lunch at Chinook Center afterwards in 2015. Rest In Peace, Jessie!

  4. Although I didn’t know Jessie that well, I did enjoy bowling with and against her, quite the competitor. Jessie showed grace and humility even when beating me soundly at the game. Jessie will be missed at the bowling alley and I will hold fond memories of her every time I enter the alley. Rest peacefully Jessie!
