Jean was a skilled homemaker keeping her home in tip top shape. She was a remarkable cook and enjoyed preparing meals, canned goods and delicious baked goodies from scratch for her family and friends, especially over the holidays.

She was a long-time hockey fan and enjoyed watching her son play hockey and tuning in to Hockey Night in Canada. Jean was a woman of faith and longtime member of the Leamington United Church, enjoying the church’s Coffee Club. She also enjoyed playing cards at the Half Century Club, Monday afternoons with her girlfriends and browsing through the Sears and Avon catalogues.

Jean will be greatly missed by daughter Barbara and husband Bernard LaLonde of Blenheim and son Brian and his wife Sheryl of Emeryville/Leamington.
