We Remember


It is with great sadness that we announce that Jean Isabel Alton (née Young), in her 80th year, peacefully passed away, Saturday, February 8, 2020 at home, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Jeannie has now been reunited with her husband of 57 yrs. Anthony Edwin Alton, parents Elsie and Donald Young, brother Forrest, and guardians Aunt Pearl and Uncle Stan Thompson.

Jeannie will be especially missed by her loving sister Ruth Anne and husband Elmer Milbradt, sister-in-law Shirley Tovey and family, and cousins Margaret Jean and Michaela and their families.

Special thanks to her personal caregivers, family, friends, neighbours and the Kelowna palliative medical team who provided loving support. It allowed Jeannie to spend her final 5 weeks in her beautiful home overlooking the Okanogan Valley, listening to the birds chirping outside her window.

Jeannie was a beloved dedicated teacher to many young children, an avid skier and hiker, an accomplished artist and pianist, and gardener. She will be sorely missed by all those who knew her.

As per Jeannie’s wishes there will be A Celebration of Life, to be held in Kelowna, B.C. and in Collingwood, Ontario at a later date. If you wish to send a condolence, post photos or share a memory, please scroll down the page to the area called “Condolences”.
