H. Jeanette (Thompson) Gregory

“If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever.”

After a courageous battle with cancer, surrounded by her family, H. Jeanette Gregory peacefully passed away at her residence on Sunday, May 6, 2012.  She had just celebrated her 71st birthday.  Loving wife of Milt Gregory for 49 years.  Devoted mother and grandmother to Carol and Scott Rachuk (Kristen & Julia), Lisa and Bob Milligan (Carson & Leah), Brian and Tanya Gregory (Jake & Holly), Janet and Steve Lange (Kaden, Brent (wife Shauna), Connor & Riley).  Great Grandmother to Brayden & Brooklynn.

She lived each and every day to its fullest, teaching us many life lessons including the importance of family. Jeanette was an elder of the Ilderton United Church and a past member of the Ilderton Fair Board.

Friends may gather at the Ilderton United Church, 121 Mill Street on Saturday, June 16th at 1:30 PM for a memorial service, which will be held at 2 PM. 

A gathering will follow the memorial service at the Ilderton Community Centre, 13168 Ilderton Road, Ilderton.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Ailsa Craig and Area Food Bank, the Canadian Cancer Society, MS Society of Canada, the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Ilderton United Church.
