HETHERINGTON, Jean Marie (nee Crabb) - We are sad to announce the passing of our beloved Mom, Jean, on September 30, 2020 in her 89th year.
Predeceased by her parents Lyall (1975) and Evelyn (2008) and her brother Bob (1990).
Survived by her daughters Debra (Mark), Kim (Craig) and Susan (Rob), grandchildren Ashley (Scott), Jeff (Aantu), Andrew (Kelsey), Brenna (Dave), Jake and Ben, and great grandchildren Hannah, Taylor, Matthew, Mason, Sienna, Jayde, Hamish and Campbell.
Mom grew up in Leaside and reminisced fondly of her high school years at Moulton College. She was especially proud of being elected Head Girl in her final year there.
Mom met her true calling when she became a mother. She was patient, kind and gave advice that was always thoughtful and supportive. She adored being a Nana, and later a Great-Nana.
She loved her life in Uxbridge, working at Accents, volunteering at the Cottage Hospital Gift shop and being actively involved with Uxbridge Baptist Church. It was especially nice when her own Mom moved to town in to be close to her. They shared many memorable occasions during those years, around town and on summer road trips.
Throughout her life, she was happiest when she had her family around her. We all share loving memories of Christmases and family gatherings at her homes in Sandford and Uxbridge. Wherever Mom lived, it felt like home.
Alzheimer’s robbed us of many years, but we know that Mom is finally at peace.
We would like to thank the staff at Fairview Lodge, Whitby for their wonderful care of Mom in her final years.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Alzheimer Society would be greatly appreciated.
