Bridges JeanBRIDGES, Jean Arlene (née Rustad)  -  Jean passed away peacefully, on September 9, 2023, surrounded by her loving family.


She was born January 18, 1937, in Rose Valley, Saskatchewan, and lived the first 10 years of her life in nearby White Fox before moving with her family to Prince George, BC.


Though she was an only child, Jean had a large and close extended family growing up.


After graduating from High School, Jean moved to Vancouver and completed her training as a Registered Nurse at Saint Paul's Hospital.


She met her husband, Harvey, on a blind date arranged by one of her nursing pals. She remained close to her nursing friends up to her passing away.


Jean and Harvey raised a family of four rambunctious boys in North Burnaby. Jean's family meant the world to her, and she took great pleasure and pride throughout the years in celebrating them all. Jean and Harvey recently celebrated 65 years of marriage. 


Jean suffered more than her share of heartache and tragedy in her life, losing her mom at a young age and prematurely losing her sons, Allan (1991) and Ron (2004).


Jean showed that she was made of stern stuff in carrying on with her life in the face of such hardships.


Jean is survived by her husband, Harvey; sons, David (Michelle) and Greg (Diane); and grandchildren, Sydney, Megan, Allison, Katy, Cameron, Lisa, Kayla and Kai.


There will be no service at Jean's request.


In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Charity of Your Choice or do something kind for someone less fortunate.
