WEIR

HELEN JEAN WEIR born 1925 in Vernon passed away peacefully on Monday, January 5th in the Vernon Jubilee Hospital where she had worked as an RN for many years. She will be sadly missed by her daughters Shelley (Grant) and Marnie (Don) and granddaugters, Niki, Chrissy, Michelle, Kaitlin and grandson Erik. Jean is also survived by her 2 wonderful sisters, Marge and Carol. She also leaves to mourn, many wonderful friends, who were so supportive of her over the past couple years. Jean loved them all dearly. The family wishes to give hugs to Dr. Dyck, Dr. Yacyshyn, Dr. Khan, all the nurses and the Respiratory staff in ICU who cared for Jean the past couple of months. Your love of life, your laughter and compassion touched us all. Thank you to the nurses on 3 West for your kindness and care. There will be no service by Jean’s request. It was her wish to be cremated and interred with her Grandma in Revelstoke. A Celebration of Life tea will be held at a later date. The “Light a Bulb Campaign” holds special meaning, so the family would greatly appreciate donations to that fund in lieu of flowers.
