Condolences & Memories (6 entries)

  • I have fond memories of being part of the Artist Mothers group at MAWA with Jocelyn. She was always so enthusiastic, snarky, and fun, and I am sad to know I won't get to share laughs and creativity with her again. Sending condolences to Jocelyn's family and loved ones! - Posted by: Melanie Dennis Unrau (friend) on: Feb 26, 2023

  • Thank-you, Jocelyn, for all of the laughter (that precious laugh!), talks, tears, art, poetry and fun! I am so grateful for you and miss you so much. Scott, thank-you for sharing time and stories with me. Sending love to you all, Scott, Quinn and Elanor. - Posted by: Sheri Turner (Friend) on: Feb 24, 2023

  • Jocelyn was a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. Her laughter lit up the room and her authenticity warmed it. She was my friend and I will miss her terribly. Scott, Quinn, Eleanor… you have my heartfelt sympathies and love. - Posted by: Adelle R (Friend) on: Feb 20, 2023

  • I was so sad to hear about Jocelyn's illness and now her passing. She was such an enthusiastic and energetic person, a real "ball of energy" who was always fun to be near. I'll always remember helping to teach her to drive and a trip with we took with friends Scott Jordan and Ida Giannini to Mount Rushmore during reading week one year at U of M. Fun times. Gone far too soon, it really makes you realize how precious life can be. Rest in peace J.C. and my condolences to Scott, Quinn and Eleanor. - Posted by: Ryan Wakshinski (Friend/Colleague) on: Feb 14, 2023

  • I will remember Jocelyn as a bright light. She was a creative happy person whose infectious laugh made me feel happy. I am heartbroken that she has been taken from us too soon. I will treasure all the fun we had growing up together including camping trips (Texas) and playing dress up and attending cultural events- time spent at the beach eating fried chicken and a massive water fight at Grandpa Smolinski’s place in Beausejour. Too many holiday gatherings to count - which I mainly remember the Ukrainian food and always lots of love and laughs. Every get together we all shared a laugh over something silly. All my love to the family left to carry on. Her children Eleanor & Quinn and her loving partner Scott my heartfelt condolences to all of you. JP, Auntie Liz and Uncle Alfred. - Posted by: Heather Smolinski (Cousin ) on: Feb 11, 2023

  • Our most sincere and deepest sympathy to Scott, the children, John-Paul, and especially to Jocelyn’s loving parents Alfred and Elizabeth. Cannot even imagine your heartbreak. Hopefully your good memories will somehow help you through this very sad time in your life. - Posted by: Bill & Kathy Fecio (Katherine Krawchuk) (Elizabeth’s long time school friend (Grades 1-12)) on: Feb 11, 2023
