WOODWARD, M. Jean - Peacefully at Lakeridge Health Port Perry on Thursday, January 10, 2019, Margaret Jean Woodward passed away from Mesothelioma.

Jean is survived by her beloved husband of 67 years, Grantley Thomas Woodward; their children Judith Ann Peshal (Steven), Jane Elizabeth Woodward Michalak, Susan Lynn Jones (David) and William Grantley Woodward.

Cherished grandmother of Stephanie Richardson (Tom), Kristi Honey (Tom), Matthew Peshal (Sarah), Lindsay Schuster (Andrew), David Jones (Kim), Elizabeth Taylor (Brad), Sarah Holt (Spencer), Jacqueline Fortner (Randy), Rachel Woodward, Gregory Woodward and Michael Woodward.

Loving great-grandmother of Trisha and Megan Lee, Ella and Grantley Honey, Kaylin Harris, Steven, Nolan and Nathan Peshal, Ronan, Greta and Hugh Jones, Makenna and Goldie Taylor, Xavier Holt and Katelyn Fortner.

Jean is predeceased by her parents William Stocks Newsome and Mary Ann Newsome, sister Betty Hill and brother Bill Newsome.

Jean was born in Weston, Ontario. After being raised and educated in Weston and England, Jean began her career as an elementary teacher.

After marrying the love of her life, Grantley, and raising their four children and many foster children, Jean returned to the classroom. Her love for her family, friends and the community were hallmarks of Jean’s life.

Never once wanting to be in the spotlight, Jean was an exemplary teacher, active church and UCW member, community volunteer at the school breakfast program and in Canterbury Commons.

Funeral service at a later date.

If desired, donations in memory of Jean may be made to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind.
