Jean was born July 6, 1930 in Wanstead, England and immigrated to Canada in 1954. She married Winifried Boedeker in 1958 and had 3 children in the years that followed. After her marriage Jean settled in Vernon where she worked as an RN at Vernon Jubilee for 30 years. She had a strong love for animals and spent much of her life horseback riding around BC with her dogs trailing behind her. Jean was a woman of many talents with a wild and adventurous spirit. Her pearls of wisdom and infectious laughter serve as a memory to all who knew her. She was a loving mother, grandmother, and fierce friend who will forever be missed. A service will be held at a later date. For those wishing to send a condolence, photos or share memories, may do so by scrolling down this page to the area called “Share Your Condolences.”
