Jean resided in the Cookstown, Alliston and Beeton area over her 101 years. She was a dear friend to many people during her long life. Her physical limitations did not affect her sharp mind or spirit.
Jean remembered an amazing number of people, often their birthdays & life stories as well. She also remembered them in her prayers. It must have taken a lot of her time to pray for so many. Jean had a special connection with little children, sharing smiles ,hugs & laughter with them at church. She appreciated any kindness shown her and was very grateful for the wonderful care she received at Simcoe Manor, Beeton. Jean had a blessed assurance that her Lord and friend Jesus Christ was with her always and that one day He would welcome her into heaven .She has arrived! (Arrangements entrusted to the Paul F. Kent Funeral Home, Cookstown)
