A memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 8, 2012 at 3:00pm at Oliver’s Grande Prairie Funeral Chapel. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (1200 Denison Street, Markham, ON L3R 8G6) or to the Canadian Cancer Society.

I was saddened to hear Jean was ill and now of her passing. I appreciated her warm, friendly smile and I always enjoyed chatting with her. Things just aren't the same, when our mom, sister, grandmother is gone. I trust and pray that you will be blessed with strength now and in the time ahead.
