Jean Marilyn Hergott (nee Price)

January 22, 1953 – May 11, 2023
In Loving Memory ~
Jean Marilyn Hergott ‘nee Price’ suddenly passed on May 11th, 2023 at Moog & Friends Hospice House, Penticton BC after a short battle with cancer with her husband by her side. Jean was born January 22nd, 1953 in Cranbrook BC to Ken and Carol Price.
She graduated in 1974 from Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster BC as a Registered Nurse and worked there specializing in Labour and Delivery for over 25 years. She then moved to the Okanagan where she continued working at Penticton Regional Hospital and Trinity Care Centre.
Growing up Jean was an avid skier, learning at Red Mountain in Rossland BC. She also had a wonderful adventurous side and travelled her entire life; including Europe, Australia, Mexico and Hawaii. She also enjoyed boating and reading.
She married Douglas Jerome Hergott on August 28th of 1986, together they adopted their only daughter Stephanie Hergott-Appleby. Jean truly lived her life to the fullest and enjoyed every simple pleasure but her favourite past time was spending time with her family and friends. Her smile, infectious laugh, bright blue eyes and uncanny ability to make people feel at home around her will be deeply missed.
She is survived by her beloved husband Doug of 37 years; daughter Stephanie; mother Carol; brothers Larry and Murray and her extended family.
She is predeceased by her father Ken Price who passed on June 10th of 2019. The Family wishes to extend their most sincere gratitude to Dr. Irvine, Dr. Hearne, Dr. Lucas and the teams at the BC Cancer Centre in Kelowna BC as well as the Moog & Friends Hospice for their knowledge, compassion and support throughout Jeans battle with cancer.
A Celebration of life will be held.
Date to be determined.
