Jessie was shy and quiet. She could often be found reading in her favourite chair by the window or tending to her flowers and vegetable garden. Jessie liked attending family gatherings where everyone enjoyed her delicious cloud soup, spareribs, and homemade bread. She was a great mom who spent her time caring for her children and home. Her children and grandchildren could always depend on her to be home and ready to listen, help, or have snacks. She loved spending time with her grandchildren. Jessie sewed their blankies, watched countless episodes of Tractor Tom, cheered at hockey games, and had many sleepovers. She will be greatly missed. Visitation began at 10 am on Tuesday, April 2, 2019 at Saint Ignatius (Buzwah) Church. Funeral Mass was held at 11am on Wednesday, April 3, 2019 at Saint Ignatius Church.
