A funeral service will be held from the chapel of Brandon Bowers Funeral Home, Revelstoke on Monday morning, November 9, at 11 am. Interment will follow in the Malakwa cemetery.
Jean was born in Hanna, Alberta on October 26, 1931, and had been a longtime resident of the Revelstoke and Craigellachie area. Over the years she was active with the Elks Club and the Food Bank and she loved to sew and crochet as well as spending time in flower garden or out in the wilderness gold panning. Jean enjoyed being involved, whether that was with her family or helping anyone in need. Many will remember her expressive eyes, her listening ear and her kind heart.
Jean is survived by her friend and partner, Alex Baumgartner of Craigellachie; two children: Donna (Clyde) Newsome of Revelstoke and Nick (Melanie) Barry of Craigellachie; five grandchildren: Ryan, Bryce, Stephanie, Darren and Jenny and five great grandchildren: Isle, Farrah, Prya, Mira and Nolan.
