JEAN MURIEL HOLMSTROM

Peacefully on October 9, 2020, Jean passed away in Parksville, B.C. Formerly of Winnipeg and the "Bush". She had one foot in the city and one foot in the forests of N.W. Ontario. She could skin a moose one day and attend the Symphony the next. She was truly caring and loving to all especially the underprivileged.
She was predeceased by her son Jonathan, her daughter Joanne and her brother Eric.
She will be deeply missed by her son Gregory, her brother Hart, sister Bernadette and ex-husband Robert.
Her daughters-in-law Patrisha and Yvonne and son-in-law Rick, and her many grand and great-grandchildren.
Rita Paul has been a true friend and caregiver throughout the past six years, also, she has been instrumental in all the arrangements after Jean's passing.
Please make donations to someone less fortunate by giving with no questions asked. That was the way Jean rolled.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • It has been a privilege and an honor to have known Jean for the past 6 years. We sang, had many laughs, visits to my home, visits to Eagle Park Lodge, (where she spent the last 6 years) outings to Boston Pizza, parking at the beaches and listening to the waves (she was blind), All in all I feel I have been blessed to have known such a kind, compassionate, wonderful loving person. I will miss her dearly. Whenever, we parted from one another, I always said: I love you! And her response was, I love you too! In her last few days of her life, she opened her eyes; I said, Jean this is Rita, and I shared other works. I know she heard me by blinking her eyes! - Posted by: Rita Paul (Best Friend) on: Oct 18, 2020
