October 15, 2019
Jean’s family, with profound sadness, announces the passing of her on October 15, 2019 at the age of 88 with her family at her side.
Mom worked in the early years, while raising a family, as a dental receptionist and in her later years worked at Cominco Trail and Cominco Vancouver as a document control officer. During her retirement years she traveled the world, with a very special fondness, to the Hawaii Islands. Mom cared for everyone and volunteered where help was needed. It gave her great joy. Mom was a loyal friend and
always kept in touch.
She was predeceased by the “Love of her Life” Archie McKinnon.
Jean’s sons Gary and Rick and daughter Tracy have lost a light in their life that can never be re-lit. Jean was the most amazing grandma to Kelly, Vicky, Nicole, Curtis, Archie, Taylor, Kaycee and Mitch and great-grandchildren Sebastian and Lily.
At mom’s wishes, she wanted a graveside service with a luncheon to follow in the summer 2020 so her friends wouldn’t get cold. Service to be announced at a later date.
The family would like to thank her doctors and staff at KBRH.
As an expression of sympathy, donations in Jean’s name may be made to the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital Health Foundation at 1200 Hospital Bench, Trail, BC, V1R 4M1or online at www.kbrhhealthfoundation.ca.
