Jean, known to most as “Granny”, passed away suddenly but peacefully in her home in Rossland, BC, on July 5, 2013.
Dear mother of Tammie (Brad) Britton and beloved grandma to Jessica and Connor. She leaves behind her siblings Lucille, Angus, Mary, Duncan, Doris, Amy, and June, as well as many other family members who loved her. Jean is predeceased by her parents Eldon & Iva and her sisters Ramona & Eileen.
Originally from Saskatchewan, she was a prairie girl at heart who quickly fell in love with the mountains. Granny was always fun-loving and had a unique sense of humour and a vibrant spirit, which will never be forgotten. She was a huge Saskatchewan Roughriders fan and an even bigger fan of her grandchildren at their many sporting events. Granny spent many hours as a volunteer at the Rossland Thrift Store and never ventured far without her coffee mug in hand. She was generous and thoughtful and will be greatly missed.
A Memorial Service will be held at St. Andrew’s United Church, 2110 1ST Avenue, Rossland on Saturday, July 20, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. with Reverend Keith Simmonds, Celebrant. Jordan Wren of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with arrangements.
As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made in Jean’s name to the Canadian Cancer Society at 908 Rossland Avenue, Trail, BC, V1R 3N6 or to a charity of your choice.
