Jean came to Wawa in 1950 from Scotland and met her life partner Eric and enjoy 56 years of marriage before he passed in 2008. They raised their family in Wawa before moving to Peterborough in retirement. They enjoyed golf, cards, winters in Florida and travelling. Jean often commented on what a wonderful retirement they had.
She will be missed by her four children: Don (Nancy), Bruce (Irene), Linda McCoy (Danny) and Erica (Nelson).
Her grandchildren brought her much pride and joy. Robbie, Pamela McCoy Jones (Tim), Ryan (Bajah), Stacey Gotfredson (Mike), Dustin (Rachelle), Shawn (Marcella), Heather, Derek (Jaime), Bryden (Troy), Kaleb, Brittany (Ethan), Keenan and Chloe.
Great grandchildren Danica, Camryn and Jaxon McGuinn, Ayden, Daelen, Julia and Layla Jones, Conner, and Parker Gotfredson and Tylah and Davin Perkins brought Jean much happiness.
