Jeannie passed away peacefully on April 5, 2023, with her family by her side after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

She was predeceased by her husband Milton, her younger sister Maureen, and her sister-in-law Mugsy.

Jeannie leaves to mourn her son Tom (Michelle) and three grandchildren, Carter, Paige, and McKenna.  She will also be greatly missed by her brother Garry (Myrna), niece Lisa (Ray), brother-in-law Don, nephew David (Alyssa), niece Katherine, great-niece Olivia, great-nephews Theo and Thomas, brother-in-law Ray, the Gilroy Sunday Night Dinner Crew, her best friend Sue, and many other special family members and friends.

Jeannie loved to curl, play golf, and spend time with her grandchildren.  She always looked forward to their annual summer trip to Idabel Lake where countless memories were made.

Jeannie had a great love for her family, a zest for life, and a spunky adventurous spirit which led to some wonderful memories in her final year.  A bucket list trip to Whistler, BC last summer where she “conquered” the Eagle Zipline, and a fun-filled road trip with her best friend Sue where they visited Drumheller and her childhood hometown of Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan.

Special thanks to her beautiful Theresa, and all the wonderful nurses and staff at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice for their compassionate care.

As per her wishes, there will not be a service.

If desired, donations can be made to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice in her memory.  A truly beautiful place.

We will miss you Gran.  Hope you are having a dance party in Heaven.
