JEANETTE (JEAN) MARIE ORAM
Peacefully on September 26, 2019 at Oakview Place, surrounded by several family members, our sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and great-aunt, Jean passed away. She was welcomed into heaven by her daughter Pat; parents, Arzelia and Edouard; sisters, Lori, Linda and Gisele; and her goddaughter and niece Rae.
Jean was born on October 31, 1934 in St. Vital, MB and was the first born of 12 children, eight of whom are still with us today. In 1955 she married and had four children whom she raised on her own and were the love of her life, Debra (Doug), Patricia (Tony), Michael (Andrea) and Kenneth. Also missing Gramma, are her four grandchildren, Terra (Terry), Jordan (Cara), Marc and Jason (Emma) and two great-grandchildren, August and Noah. She deeply loved and cared about all her children and grandchildren and enjoyed spending time with them.
Jean enjoyed baking and making family and friends smile with a homemade batch of Gramma Jean's popcorn. She loved to travel, whether it was to visit family or take a trip with siblings. Jean always enjoyed playing bingo and the occasional trip to the casinos.
Interment will take place in Green Acres Memorial Gardens on Friday, October 4 at 11:45 a.m. followed by a Celebration of Life service at 1:00 p.m. in Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main Street.
In lieu of flowers, Jean's family would like you to plant a rose bush or perform a random act of kindness in her memory.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
I met Jean many years ago at Sinawik Bay - Jean was a good friend of my mothers - Mildred Dean. We had many a good times and laughs. Jean was very kind and good to my mom. It was a pleasure knowing her - I can still remember her standing on her balcony looking down on me in the parking lot with something cheery or funny to say! My deepest condolences to her family.
