Linda and family. I’m very sorry that I can’t be with you as you celebrate the wonderful lady that Jean was. Brian and I had previously booked the weekend out of town. Know that I’m thinking of each of you with great love and respect. I wish that I could give you all a warm hug to show how deeply loved you are. Be strong. Revel in the memories of your many years as one of the most beautiful families I’ve had the pleasure to share time with. As you move forward after this loss, continue to share Jean’s legacy of kindness and classiness in all that you do. Love you to the moon and back.

Aunt Jean, who was a loving gracious ad beautiful lady, is now in Heaven with the rest of her family, the Davidsons. My treasured memory was while I was nursing at Freeport Hospital, our Poppa was admitted while I lived in residence. I visited, sat and took care of him. Aunt Jean and the rest of our family always thanked me for that. When I saw Aunt Jean last, we all could see how she struggled to remember us, when she came to realized it was me, she hugged me so tight and once again thanked me for the care and love I showed Poppa. Uncle Bob and Aunt Jean had a inspirational, loving marriage for 67 years. We mourn with Uncle Bob, Carol, Linda and their families with our prayers and love at this sad and difficult time. RIP Aunt Jean, you are so loved and will be missed by all of those who knew you!
Your loving niece, Marg

I have many fond memories of Uncle Bob and Aunt Jean as I grew up in Cambridge with them. We saw each other quite often when Nanny Norman was still with us and still afterwards as we are a close family and did have quite a few get-togethers. Aunt Jean was always smiling and very happy to see everyone...it was nice knowing we had a special place in her heart! I miss her and am sad knowing that I will never get to hug her or see her again, but am so thankful that she was a part of my life and that she is in a much better place than where she was in the last stage of her life here on earth. She holds a special place in my heart....always! Love and miss you Aunt Jean! I know you are smiling down on us all now;). XO XO XO

My first memory of Aunt Jean, even before I was in school, was going downtown Galt with my Mom, Peggy. She took me in front of a store. Up in the huge window my A Jean was modeling a gorgeous dress. I remember my Mom pointing to her and saying in my ear who is that? I was so excited when I answered "Aunt Jean!!" She was so beautiful and must have heard me through the window. She looked at me, gave me her wonderful smile and a wink! When I saw my dad, Hughie (her older brother) later I told him that I saw A. Jean the Princess. My Aunt was a beautiful lady with a personality to match. My love to Uncle Bob, Linda and Carol xoxoxo

Our deepest sympathies to Bob, Carol & Gary and family, and Linda & Ralph and family. Jean was such a beautiful person and her heart and arms were always big enough to fit more people into her circle of friends and family. We are blessed to have wonderful memories of family celebrations spent with her. Jean will be missed but never forgotten. Love to all - Laurel & Allan and family
