LEACH, Jean Marion  - In her 90th year passed into rest under the most compassionate of care from staff at Fairview Lodge, Whitby June 20, 2019.

Having immigrated to Ajax, Ontario from Gloucester, England with her husband Roy (1997) and two children, Roger (Diane) and Jacqui (David) in 1967, she became a most devoted grandmother and “Cyber Nanny” to Russell (Kallie) and Curtis (Lisa) and extremely grateful great grandmother to Isabella and Haddie.

While Jean maintained contact with cherished friends and relatives back in England her spirited personality and easy affection garnered many friends along her life’s journey in Canada, a place she was happy to call her new home.

Of note, her family would like to thank Roz, Edith and Lynn who kept her company and continued to watch over her when things became difficult.

Also, her many friends at Ajax Baptist Church who freely and consistently gave of their friendship, support and counsel over the years.

At Jean’s request there will be no visitation prior to service and no reception afterwards.  Arrangements with McEachnie Funeral Home. 

In lieu of flowers, donations to Fairview Lodge, 632 Dundas St W, Whitby, ON L1N 5S3 (drop in only) would be greatly appreciated.
