In Memory of Jeannette Hornsby
It is with sad hearts and wonderful memories that we announce the passing of Jeannette Hornsby. Jeannette passed away peacefully surrounded by the family she loved so dearly at the age of 78 years. Jeannette will be forever remembered and deeply loved by her loving husband, Jack; daughter Cindy (Wilf) LaValley, son Darrin (Marilyn) Hornsby; treasured grandchildren, Kim (Mark) O’Dempsey, Kerry (Courtney) LaValley, Kaitlyn (Myles), Amy (Corey), Justin (Jill); great grandchildren, Daven, Blake, Hayden, Paisley, Pyper, Nate; beloved brothers, William Wichuk, John (Marilyn) Wichuk, Allan (Virginia) Wichuk, Danny (Sandy) Wichuk and sister Carol (Wayne) Zolmer; brother in law Larry Hornsby, sister in laws Ann Hornsby, Diane Hornsby and numerous nieces and nephews.
Jeannette was predeceased by her parents, William and Ann Wichuk, mother and father in law, Ora and Frank Hornsby and brother in laws Ken Hornsby and Ed Hornsby.
Jeannette loved life on the farm with Jack and her family. She was an amazing pie and bread maker and loved cooking big meals. No one ever left her house hungry
Community and neighbors were important to Jeannette. Jeannette enjoyed watching Jack play baseball and curl with friends, which always gave her a chance to catch up on the news!
Family was everything to Jeannette. Her family often referred to her as their “rock”, as she was always there to support them in which ever way that she could.
We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the outstanding staff of the Barrhead Health Care Centre. A Celebration of Jeannette’s Life will be held on Sunday, May 5th, at 2:00 p.m., at the MTM Hall, Tiger Lily Alberta.

Sad to hear such news, I remember Jack and Jeanette being so kind to our family. We were new comers to the neighbourhood and she invited me in and we had tea. She made me feel very welcomed , and made sure that I knew that if I needed any help with anything, to give them a call. My children will always remember her long nails. Never seen such long natural nails ever.
Rest in peace. 🤗

Sorry to hear of Jeanette's passing when we were out in Edmonton visiting Marilyn and family last week. Remember our times together in Wabamun and Barrhead at the farm when we would be out there.
