TINLING, Jean Margaret (Campbell)
September 13, 1945 — August 1, 2018
It is with profound sadness that the family of Jean Tinling announces her peaceful passing at 4:00 a.m. on August 1st, 2018, at the age of 72.
Jean is predeceased by her father, Alexander Campbell, her mother, Margaret Campbell, and her former spouse, Cyril Tinling.
Jean will be lovingly remembered by her sons, Christopher (Colleen), and Mark (Marie-Andree), her daughters, Susanne and Kerry (Matthew), her sisters Beverly (Silvano), Nancy (John), Betty (Brent), and her brother, Sandy (Pattie), her grandchildren Jessica, Katelyn, Benjamin, Olivia, Madeleine, Adam, Baby Engel, all her nieces and nephews, her friends and neighbours.
Jean was an independent soul with the heart of an adventurer. She loved to recall her travels to Europe as a teenager with her dear friend Cynthia, and spent many moments retelling the stories of all the experiences they had together.
Jean had a deep love of animals from childhood on, which had her bringing home dogs, birds, horses, her two geese, Peeper and George, and many others over the years. Her dog Andy was the highlight of her life the past thirteen years, and they shared not only walks, but frequent trips for ice cream and hamburgers.
After raising her four children and looking after a farm full of animals, Jean went on to work for Canada Post for a number of years. After retirement, Jean went back to school where she took a construction course and then went on to buy and renovate her forever home.
Jean was very private in nature, but had a generous soul, and would try and help anyone she could if they were in need. She will be greatly missed in this world.
A funeral service for Jean will be held at Springfield Funeral Home on Saturday, August 25th, at 1:00 p.m. with a reception to follow.
In lieu of flowers, her family requests any donations be made to the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation in her name.
