May 29, 1929 - April 16, 2019
Jean was the last survivor of 10 children born to Mike and Molly Becker who farmed in the Fannystelle and Elm Creek area. Jean married Erwain Hoffman and raised their family on the farm in the Lee River area; moving to the town of Lac du Bonnet in 1964. In 1976 Jean remarried W.R. Belluk and together they owned and operated a modest cattle operation in the Old Pinawa area until Bob's passing in 1992. Mom continued to be involved with the farm business well into her 80s. She worked very hard all her life and was absolutely devoted to her children and their families. You could not leave her home hungry or empty-handed.
Jean was predeceased by her husband Bob, her daughter Valerie, and great-granddaughter Darah. Left to cherish her memory are her sons, Gerald and Ron (Jan), seven grandchildren, eight great- grandchildren, her sister-in-law Mary Becker and brother-in-law Melvin Belluk; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
We would like to thank the staff at both the Pinawa Hospital and the Lac du Bonnet Personal Care Home, who provided excellent care for Mom during her confinement after a debilitating stroke; and to Seasons Funeral Chapel, Oakbank for their invaluable services.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Lac du Bonnet Personal Care Home, or a charity of your choice.
Cremation has taken place and in accordance with Jean's wishes, there will be no formal service. A Celebration of Life and private family interment will take place at a later date.
Rest in Peace Mom!
