JENNINGS, Jean - A lifelong resident of Hamilton, Jean (nee McEwen) passed away in her 98th year.
The Eternally beautiful Jean is survived by her children Laird (Joan) Jennings; Mary (Barry) McKeon; Barbara Lazier; Maggie Butterfield (Ditch) Dickinson. Beloved grandmother to Sarah Hendrie and Stephen (Laura) Jennings; David and Holly (Ralph Carter) McKeon; Amy (Erik) Schaefer; Kate (Richard Wong) Lazier; Colin (Natalie) Lazier; Will (Amanda) Lazier; David (Lauren Mentjox) Dickinson; Andrew (Morgan Batson) Dickinson; Taylor (Madeleine Werker) Dickinson and 15 great grandchildren.
She was predeceased by her loving husband Laird; dear son-in-law Colin Lazier; sisters Mary Schroeder and Babs Latta and close friend John Vanderboom.
Aside from being a masterful lifelong knitter and a faithful churchgoer, Jean volunteered at the Art Gallery of Hamilton, Junior League, Royal Botanical Gardens, and was Past President and curler at the Hamilton Thistle Club. She was a voracious reader, a Jumble aficionado, bridge player and will be missed by many, including her friends at The Meadowlands Retirement Home, for her quick wit and warm smile.
Thanks to Dr. Paul Hart for his many years of fine care and the wonderful staff at The Meadowlands.
A memorial service will be held at St. John’s Anglican Church, 272 Wilson Street East, Ancaster, Ontario on Tuesday, May 22 at 1:00 pm with a reception following in the Parish Hall.
Donations in Jean’s memory may be made to St. John’s Anglican Church or a charity of your choice.
