JEANNIE VANDERKOOI

VANDERKOOI, JEANNIE

Jeannie (54) lost her hard fought battle with cancer on Jan. 30th. Jeannie worked for many years at the Scotia Bank in Vernon and was also president of Paradigm Housing Ltd. and owner of the Victorian Seniors Retirement Residence. She was deeply loved by her husband and business partner Lance Johnson and companion Hassel. She will also be missed by stepsons Rod (Odile) Johnson and Aaron Johnson and son Derek Balcombe, her family at the Coast as well as friends thru out North America and Mexico. She was a very loving, caring person and had the heart and patience of an angel. She leaves a huge void and will be very deeply missed. A celebration of life will be held at The Victorian, 3306 – 22nd St. on Thurs., Feb. 6th at 5:00 pm with soup and sandwiches. In lieu of flowers and donations, please plant a tree or rose bush for Jeannie.
