    Tai chi was the common denominator for knowing Jean. We became good friends and enjoyed many a laugh over a cup of tea, or a bowl of soup. Friends since the 1990’s , she will be missed.

  • Joanne Gaudet says:

    I was happily the “handi dart” driver taking Jean, Beth, and Sheila to the weekly Tai Chi group. Occasionally we would stop at the bakery to get sausage rolls when it was her turn to bring treats. It was a pleasure getting to know her, Beautiful woman, inside and out.

    My dear auntie Jean passed away last Saturday at the age of 96 and she is so dearly missed. She has been such a huge part of my life since she and Uncle Howard moved to Kelowna in the 70’s to be close to my mom, Jean’s younger sister (Sheila Geis).. I remember in the 80’s, when I was a travelling nurse, meeting her and Uncle Howard in Palm springs on one of their many trips down south. She loved to travel. I have so many fond memories of Auntie Jean, especially sharing my family’s special holidays – Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, and of course birthdays. I have so enjoyed celebrating her birthday every August baking her many special tortes especially her favourite, black forest cake. Last August we shared a special lunch at Tower ranch on the patio and a piece of homemade paleo black forest cake in my little suite. I feel so blessed to have had so many special visits with her. Auntie Jean has also been a special part of my two daughters’ (Brianna and Shantelle) lives, as she was there from their births, through their school years, and beyond attending birthday parties, easter egg hunts, figure skating competitions, band concerts, dance shows, etc. We also celebrated many Mother’s Days together with my Mom – she was like a second mother to me. Auntie Jean had the dearest of hearts, was so devoted to all her family, never forgetting anyone’s birthday right up until this past September. She was so very kind and genuine, elegant and poised, polite and sincere, and so very generous. She had such a huge heart and I will especially miss her bright cheery smile, positive approach toward life, and just being there for my family all these years. May you rest in peace my dear Auntie Jean with your Lord. You will forever be in our hearts.
    Brenda “Jeanne” Huber, Brianna, and Shantelle

    I’ve known Jean since 1995, and she was like a second mom to me and I will miss her dearly. She was everything Jesus preached and hoped for us to be and I am sure he will be meeting her with open arms. ONE COULD NOT HAVE KNOWN A MORE CARING, LOVING AND BEAUTIFUL WOMAN AND SHE WILL BE MISSED TERRIBLY BY ALL THAT KNEW HER.
