On Sunday evening my Grandmother and Great Grandmother to our son Garrison Passed. Grandma Mann or Grandma Jean as known to many others put up a strong and stubborn effort to her last breath.

I am pleased that Garrison was able to spend time with his Great Grandmother over the last months and she was able to meet him. He could change her mood in a second and lift not only her spirits, but that of other residents in the home.

I have so many great memories which are the important ones to hold close and share.

My grandma could bake and cook like no other grandparent. I am serious your grandmother couldn’t possibly touch mine. Allot of how and what I cook today is from my experiences with her.

If you remembered one baked good it would be her pies. I remember at Christmas my mother’s dad, my grandpa would take the home made pies and store them out of sight, offering store bought pies, saving Grandma Jeans for after.

I remember walking with my grandmother by the river behind GCI to make our way downtown to run errands. Going to Woolco department store downtown Galt,
Sunday dinners, riding in my first Taxi, taking the bus on an adventure. Her basement at the house which I was scared of until my early 30’s. Her never ending supply of sweets, home made cookies & cakes, and other staples like tang, zoodles and alphagetti, decadent chocolate cookies, jelly beans and red rose tea.

The smell of moth balls from the front hall closet. The big maple in the back yard, which dad trimmed and we used for fire wood on our camping trip. The smell of leaves in the fall, and the never ending raking and yard clean up. Sheeba the most incredible dog, loving and accepting. The photo of my late Grandfather on her dresser in the bedroom, watching over.

She was Strong, Independent, Stubborn, Opinionated, and Loving. My Grandma Mann or Grandma Jean as you may have come to know her.

Rest now.

I was deeply saddened to hear the news of Jean’s passing. I’ve known Jean since November of 2018 when I started to bring Charlie, a therapy dog with St. John’s Ambulance into riverbend every Thursday. I was instantly drawn to Jean and her great (also blunt) sense of humour. She loved Charlie so much and over the last month and a half I’d go and see her in her room and Charlie would hop on her bed to spend some quality time together.
She made me laugh and smile many times, I will miss her a lot.

Jean had the best sense of humour & always kept us laughing at Riverbend! She loved music & called everyone honey. She was very caring towards everyone & i’ll never forgot when she fed my friend’s grandma because she was worried she wasn’t eating. I’ll never forget her & will miss her every day.
