Jeannine, beloved wife of Robert (Bobby) Massey, passed away on March 22, 2019 in Kelowna, BC. She is also survived by her daughter, Julie, son-in-law Ross and two grandsons, Dereck and Jared. Also, her loving and dear sister Lorraine, and nieces and nephews close to her – Sharon, Donna, Linda, Denise, Carolyn and Michel. She is also survived by many more nieces and nephews whom she would have loved to know more but circumstances meant they were far away – her brother Darrell’s children and her sister Denise’s two boys. She was predeceased by her parents, Bertha and Romeo Blais, sister Denise, and brothers Darrell and Maurice. She is now with all of them and her beloved Uncle Eddy in heaven.
We are very sad to see Jeannine/Mom/Nana pass and will miss her so much. She was born in Montreal, Quebec in 1931 during the great depression and had many struggles in her early life. Thankfully, her sister Lorraine introduced her to Bobby in their young adult years and they married and were together for many beautiful years. He was truly her savior. Together they enjoyed dancing, bowling, playing cards, and bringing up their daughter Julie in Nassau, Quebec, and Ottawa, Ontario. Many wonderful summers were spent at Lac Rond “the cottage”. Jeannine’s last segment of life was spent in British Columbia to be close to her daughter and grandsons whom she loved so much. Many BC summers were spent at “the cottage” in Shuswap. She will always be remembered for writing letters/emails, never forgetting a birthday or anniversary and for providing strength in tough times.

Flowers may be sent to the family at 360 Long Ridge Drive, Kelowna, BC, V1V 2R9 or in lieu of flowers a donation to the Alzheimer’s Society of BC.
