Cherished mother of Michael and Naomi O’Brien, Garrick and Susan O’Brien, Nancy and Murray Woolner, Deborah and Ron Rausch, Suzanne and Tom Morton, Catherine and Stephen Abbs, Colleen and Ross Palmer, Timothy and Grethel O’Brien, and Tracey and Alan MacLeod. Dear grandma of Melanie, Amy, Jennifer, Robert, Rebecca, Mark, Jay, Jacqueline, Meaghan, Nikki, Michael, Rachel, Jeannie, Natalie, Jay, Sydney, Kathleen and a much-loved great grandma of 21. Aunt Jean was a favourite to many nieces and nephews.

Jean was a strong woman of Catholic faith.  Her relationship with God guided her through her journey and was the foundation of how she lived.  She was a loving and devoted mother, grandmother and great grandmother. As the heart and soul of her family, she has left behind an incredible legacy.  She will be dearly missed by all, though we know the memory of her will live on.

A private family Funeral Mass will be held at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in St. Joseph ON, on Thursday, October 29th at 11 AM. Cremation to follow with interment at St. Peter’s Catholic Cemetery, at a later date. Though the Funeral Mass is private, the family invites you to join with them from the comfort of your home.

The family would like to thank the wonderful, compassionate and dedicated staff at The Village of Winston Park Eby LTC for their care of our Mother.

What great memories we have from time spent at the farm or when she had the cottage near Grand Bend.
