Jean was an awesome and dedicated Kindergarten teacher at Perth Avenue P.S during her career in education. Her piano playing was spot on at our assemblies therein. Rest in Peace dear Jean.

Jean and I were members of the revolving book club with Etobicoke C.F.U.W. For years I passed on my book to Jean because we both lived in Mississauga. I got to know Jean and we became friends. We had chats about travel, other books she was reading and enjoyed our time together. As Jean aged life became more dificult for her as she found it more difficult walking and getting around. It sounds like she was in a good place at the end where she could be well taken care off. I can't come to the funeral but she will be in my thought on Tuesday December 3rd. Beth Elysee-Collen

I taught with Jean at Ryerson Public School at Dundas and Bathurst St.for a number of years. Although at the time I taught in Senior School and Jean taught Kindergarten we became friends. We had lots of fun taking sewing lessons together at Central Technical School which she referred to as the 'stitch & rip' club. She was an amazing teacher, always gentle and soft spoken with the little ones, After we retired we would from time to time get together for lunch. Her photography was quite good as she always sent me a hand written card with a beautiful photograph which she had taken on her travels on the cover. She was very proud of her niece and nephew of whom she spoke dearly whenever we got together. My deepest sympathy goes out to her family.
