  1. Just wanted to say goodbye to a wonderful Aunt. Although we didn’t see you much, we sure enjoyed visiting with you when we were home. Would also love to thank you for the lovely knitted blankets that have kept us warm and comfortable all these years. You were such and Angel here on Earth, and now you have earned your wings. Fly high Aunt Jean, we appreciate you looking out for us from above.

    Doug, Kelly, Keila, Trevor, Treycen, and soon to be baby Zorn❤️

    Dear Mary and family,
    Please know it is with our deepest condolences to hear of your loss.
    Her spirit is now free to soar!
    We feel so fortunate to have had one last visit and make Aunt Jean smile remembering a wee bit of family history.
    Our memories will remain in that she could always remember a family birthday, including mine !!

  4. I had the pleasure of looking after Jean for her entire stay at twin Lakes and met all of the lovely family members .. she was well loved and always had a stash of peppermints and werthers. She used to enjoy a beer once in a while and always welcomed visitors.
    Jean and her family will be missed.
    Love to all and thank you for entrusting Jeans care with us and to finish with Knights Funeral home is second to none
