How privileged I also felt to know Jean. We first met when my daughter Samantha was six and had made friends with Jean’s daughter Heather in Grade One. I asked Jean, who was at that time a stay home working mother, would she take care of Sam while I was working outside the home in TO. Jean said she would, Sam was already spending hours in her home, but we made it official, every day for four years I could go out to work knowing that Jean was taking care of my daughter.
She became a second mom to Sam and Sam has always loved her dearly.

Jean was a wonderful caring, loving, loyal, hardworking and very funny lady who I have been privileged to know for the past 45 years.

We spent time together on November 1, last year, a wonderful afternoon visit, Jean was in top form, funny, and as usual, caring and loving. Samantha, Ken and myself had a lovely time; Heather her wonderful caring daughter provided a delicious lunch, we reminisced, talk about our favourite TV show Corrie and just had a fun afternoon.

It’s has been a privilege to know Jean and her husband Reg who was such a lovely man. Rest in Peace Jean you and Reg are together once again and that is a comfort to all who knew you both. Love Maxine and Ken
