October 5, 1914 –
January 31, 2014
After a long, healthy and happy life Jean passed away peacefully on Friday, January 31, 2014, at the age of 99. She was born to Robert and Abigail Murray and raised in Consul, Saskatchewan. In February 1937 she came to Trail and in March she and Henry (Hank) were married. They lived in Trail, Oasis, Vancouver and in 1942 they moved to Blueberry Creek BC where they raised their family.
Jean enjoyed the quiet, simple things in life — reading, making cookies, gardening, afternoon tea and going for car rides.
She was predeceased by her husband Hank, brothers John and Bill, sister Molly, sister-in-law Helen and son-in-law Bill.
Jean will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her daughter Carolyn (Cook), sons Terry and Bob; grandchildren Jim, Keith, Colleen, Jennifer, Glenn, Erin, Kerry, Michelle and Bobby; great grandchildren Christopher, Heather, Daniel, Caryn, Chelsea, Michaela, Kendra, Ana and Julia; great-great grandchildren Riley, Jasmine, Rory and Osiris.
At Jean’s request there will be no funeral and no flowers. Cremation has taken place.
Our thanks to all the staff at Talarico Place for their kind, patient and supportive care during her final years.
“She was one feisty lady!”
“We’ll miss you Mom!”
