MORTON, Jean   - Born in Poulton-Le-Fylde, England, she passed away peacefully surrounded by her family in her home filled with love on Sunday, January 16, 2022 at 87 years of age. 

Jean shared 60 years of marriage filled with love and happiness with her husband Tom. 

She is survived by her three children Carol, Barry, and Gillian (John), her bother Bill (Hazel), their children Howard, Graham, and Heather, and her brother-in-law Dave (Sue). 

Proud grandmother to Patrick, Brianna (Tom), Trevor and Matthew.  Proud great-grandmother to Ryan, Dylan and Tyler.  Jean is predeceased by her husband Tom, and the people who raised her from a very young age, her maternal grandparents and her Aunty Mary and Uncle Joe. 

Jean became a geography teacher and was a long term volunteer with such organizations as Community Care, IODE and the Uxbridge Trail Association. 

She enjoyed spending time with her friends and neighbours and most recently enjoying time with her companion Barrie, the Limey Ladies and her exercise group in Uxbridge, ON.

We are comforted that Jean and Tom are together again.  Her strong love of life and the love she had for her family will be missed dearly. We love you Jean. 

A private service, by invitation only, will be held on Saturday, January 22, 2022 at 11:00 AM. 

A celebration of life for Jean will be held in the spring in an outdoor setting, if you are interested in attending the celebration, please send the family an email (This email address is being protected from spambots.
