Jean Marlene Finley
It is with great sadness that the family of Jean Marlene Finley (Grimson) announces her passing on 5 January 2022 at the age of 84 years. She was the youngest daughter of eight, born to the late Grimur and Christine Grimson in Red Deer.
Jean will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 61 years Bud; children Lori Finley (J.C.), Kandy Lovse (Tony) and Kym Schreiner (Kurt); grandchildren Kristin (Raad), Fraser (Chelsea), Rogan, Tyana, Katja, and Marleina; great grandchildren Ava and Alyssa; and numerous relatives and friends. She was predeceased by her brothers (Earl, Sam, Laurie) and her sisters (Alberta, Dorothy, Lily, Vona).
Jean was known by all as a thoughtful, gentle lady with a deep faith in God. She was proud of her Icelandic heritage and visiting there was a highlight of her many travels. Jean was a wonderful dancer, pianist, and curler but was a ruthless card player. Through her long service as a registered nurse in Ontario (Burlington, Welland and Sarnia) and at the Misericordia Hospital, Jean gave comfort to many.
A celebration of Jean’s life will be held at a later date.
If desired, memorial donations may be made in Jean’s name to the Alzheimer Society of Alberta and Northwest Territories alzheimer.ab.ca.
