McGOVERN, Jessie Anne

Jessie Anne McGovern beloved wife of John McGovern of Calgary, passed away on Friday, January 25, 2019 at the age of 63 years. Jessie and John were set to celebrate their fortieth year of marriage this upcoming July.

Jessie was an intelligent and compassionate woman who worked extremely hard to accomplish her goals. An excellent accountant who, until her retirement, operated her own very successful accounting and tax service. She was dedicated to her profession and the interests of her clients were always paramount to her. She loved golf, travelling and spending time with her family and friends. She treasured her dogs; Rocky and Khan. Those who knew her were aware of her passion for everything elephants. Jessie always had a place in her heart for family and friends, and always gave the best of hugs.

She was a daily reminder to me of what kindness is all about.

Besides her loving husband, John, Jessie is survived by her special niece and friend Cindy Willett; nephew, Robert Ohman and Aunt Dora Palmer. She is also survived by her loving mother in law, Mary McGovern; sister in law, Catherine Squibb (David); brothers in law, Martin McGovern (Vel), Larry McGovern (Christine) and their respective families; as well as extended family throughout Canada, England and Ireland.
