It is with sadness but gratitude for a long life well lived that Jean’s family shares the news of her passing at the age of 98.

Jean was a mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend to many.  She loved her sports - participating in them and watching them on TV!   She was a loyal, long-time fan of the Oilers and Eskimos!  She had to quit golfing at 88, 5-pin bowling at 90, lawn bowling at 93 and driving at 95.  Before quitting golf, she was awarded the Hole in One Trophy at the age of 64!  She was a volunteer beginning in her 20s and continuing on into her early 90s.

She was pre-deceased by her husband Jack (1995), son-in-law Allan Chappell (2016) and sisters Kaye and Muriel.

Left to celebrate her life are her daughter Bonnie, son Bob, daughter-in-law Iris, grandchildren Aaron, Sharolyn, Josh, Nicole and Andrea, great-grandson Drake and many nieces and nephews.

Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held early in July.  For those wishing to be on the notification list for her celebration, please send an email to

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Jean’s memory to Dogs with Wings -
