I want to offer condolence to aunt Jean’s family at this time of saying goodbye. Visiting the Berdan family was often marked by hearing aunt Jean’s infectious laughter as she always did her part to graciously host the country cousins. It seemed a long drive from Elmira to Galt but it was always a fun visit. Thanks aunt Jean and uncle Austin and all of the Berdan cousins too.

Dear cousins,
We are so sorry for the loss of your dear Mom. I'm sure you're thankful for the many wonderful years you did share with her.

Your Mom, my Aunt Jean was a warm, friendly lady. She had a beautiful smile & a twinkle in her eye most times. ... except when Uncle Austin teased her too much or he was a bit too 'crazy' in her opinion.

I was always impressed with her fashion sense. In fact, that may have been one of the last times I 'bumped' into her at the Cambridge Centre. She had come by bus on her own to check out the latest at Cleo's. I think she was a very independent lady, too.

Thinking of you as you adjust to a new part of your lives.
with blessings & love,
Rob & Helen

Always remembered by her sweet smile, hospitality, and sense of humour. My sympathies to my Berdan cousins, extended family,
and all who were touched by her life.
