March 3, 1943 – February 2, 2021

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Jeanne Delphine Anne (Wright) Waniandy at the age 77. Born March 3, 1943 in Athabasca, Alberta to George Wright and Jean (Potvin) Wright. Jeanne resided in the City of Leduc and prior to that spent many years in Fort McMurray where she raised her family with John Richard Waniandy.

She is survived by her children Brenda (Kevin) Eaton, Valdon Prodaniuk, Lori Wright, Brian Wright, Angela (Don) Adams, Leon (Tabitha Buhay) Malcolm, and Corey (Jessica Schonnop) Waniandy. Grandchildren; Victoria (Paul Chou) Eaton, Damon and Michelle Prodaniuk, Keith, Brianna, and Aaron Mills, John Wright, Megan (Greg) Farrer, Jaunna (Tanner) Hodder, Karlee (Kalin Mosher) Malcolm, Kamryn (Brad Paynter) Malcolm, and Jason Waniandy. Great Grandchildren; Grayson, Easton, Spencer, and Ariel. Sister Evelyn Benson, Brothers Alfred Wright, and Mike Northcott, and many Cousins, nieces and nephews.

Preceded by her husband John, parents George and Jean, her siblings; Gordon, Florence, Albert, Margaret, William (Willie), and Charlie Wright.

Jeanne was very loving and caring and throughout the years took in anyone who needed her love and attention. Jeanne’s creativity and talent was like no other, over the years she created many beautiful and priceless items for family and friends. If you were lucky enough to receive these lovingly created gifts you meant a lot to Jeanne. One item in particular is still being handed down to new family members in the way of a sweater that Jeanne knitted while her children for still young. She especially loved doing ceramics, but just doing them wasn’t enough for her she also shared her talent with many of her grandchildren and nieces and nephews. Many of us still have gifts that our children made for us with Jeanne’s guidance. Jeanne went to College after her husband’s stroke and earned top of her class in Welding. Due to Job market changes she never had the chance to use her welding skills.

Jeanne loved us all but her greatest joy was a visit from a precious grand or great grandchild, she was GiGi to them. When you talked to her the first thing she tell you about was the latest news about her grandchildren. She also had a very special connection with her grand pups Ryder and Tucker. Jeanne had many friends who she loved and adored. She always had time for you no matter who you were. Jeanne’s passing has left a huge hole in our hearts. She will be forever loved and missed. We will be holding a service for Jeanne this summer.

Love you Mom, you’ll forever be in our hearts.

  3. I didn’t meet my auntie Jean till I was over 40 years old. I moved up to fort McMurray for a year and while I was up there I had the privilege of meeting her for the first time at her favorite restaurant in fort McMurray those of you who know her know that I’m talking about the cozy corner. soon as I walked into the restaurant I could feel her wonderful energy a new exactly who she was right away found my way over to her and got the biggest hug ever I loved her the day I met her and I’ll love her forever. We talked about a lot of spiritual things come and visit me. Love you Auntie Jean.

  4. I would like to express my sincere sadness upon learning of your mother’s passing.

    For several years I had the opportunity to serve as her Bishop while she attended Timberlea Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Fort McMurray.

    Jeanne will be fondly remembered as a very good person that had a great sense of humour and an infectious laugh. Perhaps its this attribute that supported her through so many trying times in her life.

    Certainly her life was not easy; but it was very worthwhile.

    Jeanne often commented to me that her greatest success in life was her family.

    She expressed her pride and admiration for her children’s and her children’s accomplishments.

    She loved and cared for so many, including her lovely husband John who preceded her in death.

    Every Veteran’s Day Jeanne held a special place in her heart for the valiant service of her dear husband and all the brave military who have given so much of themselves to preserve our personal freedoms.

    On one occasion when Veteran’s Day day fell on a Sunday, we organized a special memorial meeting at the church that included representatives from the local and provincial government and dignitaries and members of the local Legion.

    I invited your mother to be the keynote speaker for this meeting. Several of my colleagues wondered why I would have Jeanne present this, as they did not know her background as well as I did.
    The moment she began to speak and recount from memory the personal stories of your family history, including your father’s service, it brought tears to everyone in attendance.

    Her genuine and sincere kindness was the fundamental characteristic making Jeanne one of the noblest women I have ever come to know.

    The manner in which she displayed kindness was her passport that opened doors and fashioned so many friends. It softened hearts and molded relationships that have spanned over many years.

    I trust that she is safely now home in God’s loving care and reunited with other family members who have gone on before her.

    It was an honour to have known Jeannne.

    May God continue to bless all of you at this time and bring you peace.

    With love,
    Scott Garner
