We regret to announce the passing of Jean on Monday, January 19, 2009, at Vernon. Jean was predeceased by her husband Taisto in 1983 and her daughter Penny in 2008. She is survived by her grandson Connor and a multitude of friends.
Jean was a warm, gracious, caring, dignified person who loved life and always saw the best in people. She had a passion for nature, animals, music, fishing and the outdoors.
Jean taught Medical Sociology, Gerontology and Family Studies at the University of Victoria and Camosun College until moving to the Okanagan. She was an Area F Nord Director and involved in the Kingfisher community.
The world will be a poorer place without her.
