SOWERBY, Jean Daphne (nee Burr) –

Peacefully at Rubidge Retirement Residence on Saturday August 23, 2014 in her 92nd year.

Loving mother of John (Jackie) and Chris (Susan). Cherished grandmother of Leigh (Breanna), Robert (Lindsey), Laura (Alex), Julia and Carolyn (Matt). Proud great-grandmother of Benjamin and Anna. Dear sister of Josephine Kerry, Richard Burr and the late Kathleen Wood and Harry Burr.

Jean emigrated from England to Peterborough with her young family in 1957 and has touched many lives in the community through her work as a teacher at the Grove School, Highland Heights, Edmison Heights and Adam Scott CVI.  Her adventurous spirit and love of travel took her to all 7 continents, the last being Antarctica at the age of 85.

She was an excellent seamstress and took pleasure in sewing and knitting for her family. Jean and John had enjoyed ballroom dancing together, so in her retirement Jean became a line dancing teacher.

She had many interests over the years – reading for the blind, painting, cryptic crosswords and many kinds of handiwork but her lifelong passion was gardening. All of her fingers and thumbs were green and she spent many happy hours in her beautiful garden. Her other joy was spending time with her family at their cottage on Coon Lake. Jean was a remarkable woman and she will be missed by her family and friends.

The family would like to thank the staff at Rubidge Retirement Residence for their excellent care.
