    Hi Gregg,
    Jean’s cousin, Donna, was kind enough to let me know of Jean’s passing last week. I was just thinking of Jean the week before, I knew she was fighting for her life but I had no idea the end was so near.

    Jean and I went to junior high school together here in Calgary, while you and I went to high school together in Edmonton. I will never forget Jean saying to me, “You will never guess who I am going out with”, for some strange reason my guess was Gregg Tranter, why, I have no idea, I just knew.
    I am so sorry that your journey of life will continue without Jean at your side.

    Regards,
    Dianne Dennison Duncan

  9. My deep condolences. I so much enjoyed working with Jean in the Forest Lawn x-ray clinic before either of us had children. Sadly, we somehow became disconnected, but I always remember the fun years we had working closely together. We were such good friends, and I am saddened to suddenly read in the Herald that she has passed away.
    My sympathies go out to you.
    Wyn Luft
