Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • My condolences go out to Jean's family. Although I had not seen Jean in many years I always remembered her smile and her kindness when I would see her at family events when I was young. My thoughts are with you all during this difficult time. - Posted by: Andrea Kostyra (Cousin) on: Feb 09, 2015

  • Though I have lived away for many years, I will always remember Jean's smile and good nature. I have many fond memories of spending time with my cousins at the farm when we were young. It was also a pleasure seeing her when I happened to be in Winnipeg for family events. My condolences go out to her family. She left us too soon.
