Jean was born and raised in Melville, Sask., coming to BC with her husband Earl and 5 children in 1958. The family lived in Kamloops for 7 years then Revelstoke, from 1965 to 1969, before settling and retiring in Nakusp. Jean was very active in all communities volunteering at the Boys and Girls Club, curling, and serving with the Legion Ladies Auxiliary. Jean and Earl enjoyed traveling – heading across Canada, to Hawaii, and to Europe a number of times. They also enjoyed being Snowbirds in Mesa, Arizona where they reestablished contact with many other Saskatchewan farmers. Jean spent her retirement crocheting for her 19 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren and making everyone’s favourite; strawberry jam. Jean is survived by Earl, her loving husband of 63 years. (Earl Moffat, Box 248 Nakusp). A Tea to celebrate Jean’s life will be held Aug 22, 1:30 pm at the Nakusp Legion Hall. All are welcome.
