In Loving Memory Of

Margery Polasek


Jean Polasek (née Bryan) was born March 22, 1932 in Sexsmith, and passed away on Friday, November 20, 2015, at the age of 83 years.

Jean grew up on a homestead in the Woking area, and after becoming a teacher, she married the love of her life Mike Polasek in 1950. In the following years, life was full of change and adventure: they homesteaded north of Spirit River and during that time their three children were born. Subsequently, they worked in a fishing village in BC, as well as in a logging camp at Keg River, and then settled on the farm west of Clairmont.

During these busy years, Jean took care of her growing children and carried on with a diverse and fulfilling teaching career that spanned over 30 years. However, all these responsibilities never dampened Jean's zest for life; she enjoyed her family and friends, her many students, and her hobbies which included entertaining, enjoying her flowers, and later, traveling with Mike.  

Jean is survived by her 3 children, Lorae Marsten, Carie (Bruce) Willis, and Jim (Deb) Polasek; 9 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.

Jean was predeceased by her husband Mike, siblings Bruce and Jack Bryan, Beth Perkins, and Fern Doebert, as well as her foster son Clarence Chowace.

We invite you to join us for a memorial celebration of Jean's life which will be held on Monday, November 30, 2015 at 11:00am at the Sexsmith Civic Centre.
