I was sad to hear of the passing of Aunty Jean. She was my Dad’s baby sister and the pride of the family. She was the one who kept track of all the family and kept in touch. I loved her unique sense of humour.

Auntie Jean will be remembered fondly for her energy and humor. I always enjoyed her matter of fact demeanor in our conversions. And, she will forever be in my memory as the ‘Jeanchuk’ to Mom’s ‘Mabeloski’ . Ah, those Janke girls!

Jean was a wonderful aunt. We will always remember her gifts of love, kindness, hospitality, music, and many more that she shared so freely and abundantly with her family and friends.

I loved my Auntie Jean. She always showed such grace and was so generous with our Simmons clan when we came to visit. My life is better for her unique laugh, honest conversation, encouraging smile and unconditional love. Like Uncle Fred, I will miss her! Janet
