Book of Condolences

Jeannette and Len Weston Dear Carol, Donna and Ian and families: Our sincere condolences on the passing of your mother, grandmother and great grandma. We have fond memories of Jean going back to 1967 when she first came to Sir Wilfred Laurier Secondary School. With her red hair, she was always a ball of fire. Her memory for recalling people and places was phenomenal. She sure did enjoy spending her retirement winters in Florida. She also fought the good fight till the end. We know that you will cherish all the memories you have of her. Jeannette and Len Weston
Dorothy GilliesTo Jean's family == I would like to express my sympathy to all of you on the loss of your mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She was an amazing lady who I got to meet when we joined White Oaks United church. She loved my late husband and she was always so friendly. I was so sorry that we never got a chance to visit her in the past couple of years. When I lost my husband in March 2020, she reached out to me to express her support for me, which I very much appreciated. She will be missed by all of her friends and relatives..
Dennis and Margaret WilliamsonOur sincere condolences to all the family. Dennis and I talked often to Jean at the church, and at the Kiwanis club. Margaret and Jean loved to knit, so met regularly at the craft group at the church. She talked often about her late husband, and what great times they had together, both at home, and when they travelled. She really missed him. It is nice to know they are together again. She will be fondly remembered.
Heather McLeanPlease accept my condolences in the loss of your mother. She was quite the grand lady, and folks at White Oaks United will long tell stories of her and all her interests and activities. She will be fondly remembered.
Rick VandertuinI was sorry to hear of Jean’s passing. Thoughts of her brought back many fond memories of our time at Wilton Grove. All of us there appreciated her contribution to the life of the school. She was truly part of the team and helped keep that busy and challenging place full of positivity, laughter and love.
Joan/Robert (Bob) MannCarol, Donna and Ian we send our deepest sympathy to you all, in the passing of your Mom. Jean, Joan and I shared many laughs together in Florida, out for dinner or at the beaches. We will always remember her joyous laughter and easy going manner. Although I did not see my cousin much, we always looked forward to being together in Naples. It was your mom who introduced us to Buffalo Chips in Bonita and to a great deli called Jason's. We met there at both places several times. She surely will be missed by many.
