My sincerest condolences for the loss of your mother. She was a beautiful, kind spirit. Jean and your father, Geoff shared a long friendship with my parents. I have many fond memories of them both, their gentle humour, easy conversation and good heartedness. They are missed. My thoughts are with you, Karen Black

Jean was the sweetest woman with a beautiful soul that shone through when one spoke with her. Our relationship began many years ago when her beloved husband Geoff was my volunteer driver to multiple appointments after I was in a car accident in 1997 . I told her after Geoff passed suddenly that I grew up without a father and if I could of picked one it would of been Geoff . She was deeply touched. From then on Jean phoned me a few times a year to visit. I always immensely enjoyed these calls. jean had the knack of remembering my family and asking for them which I found so touching. She truly cared how each of us were doing. I talked to Jean just weeks before her passing and she sounded so at peace and ready to be with her beloved Geoff once again. I will always remember their love of family, nature, their pets and especially each other. Jean just like Geoff before her will be deeply missed and their friendship always remembered with a smile.

I will be forever grateful to the woman I fondly called Moma Jean. She gave me three of the most blessed gifts I have received in my life.

Her first gift was the seed of loving kindness she planted in her daughter Patrica. The kind, loving spirit Jean first received through Christ lives today through my wife - my Sweet Patti. Since our marriage in 2013, I have reaped daily the harvest of love Jean had sowed in Patti many years before I knew either of them. The apple proverbial did not fall far from the tree!

Until last October (2020) my time with Moma Jean was limited to family events - holiday dinners, birthday celebrations - 5 or 6 days per year. In September Jean was diagnosed with lung cancer and came to live with Patti and me because we live near the Juravinski treatment center in Hamilton.

What initially seemed like a tragedy became Jeans second precious gift to me. For 4 weeks Jean had radiation treatment every weekday morning. I was able to witness passionate faith in Jesus lived out in her personal "God Time", prayers, and continuous kindness in word and deed.

I recall vividly how exhuberantly she thanked her God for His blessings even as she could see the end of her life was near. A day of driving familiar country roads; an evening drive to see Christmas lights; to Moma Jean, these were proof positive God is good all the time.

Jean was restricted to bed for her final weeks. The seeds of loving kindness Jean had planted in Patti and her brothers bore fruit. Patti Geoffrey Bobby and Darryl became a 7 x 24 care team, making it possible for Jean to wait in her own home for the Lord to call her to His.

Her body failed but her spirit seemed to me to grow stronger. Moma Jeans third gift was demonstrating acceptance of her terminal condition with joyful anticipation of her eternity. Awake and conscious less and less in the last days, but every waking moment smiling and thanking the Lord for her blessings.

Moma Jean was a living witness to the truth of God's word

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God, and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
