In loving memory of Jean Doris Wasykowski, 66, of Dryden, Ont., who passed away peacefully Friday, June 3, 2000 at her residence.
She was born in Fort Frances, Ont. on Oct. 2, 1933 to John and Nettie Wasykowski.
In her younger years, Jean worked at the seniors’ home in Fort Frances. She would run errands for the seniors–even on her days off.
Jean also worked at a tourist camp in Nestor Falls, Ont. She used to transport tourists by motor boat from Nestor Falls to camp on Lake of the Woods.
Jean liked to crochet and knit. She also was an avid collector of knick-knacks and trinkets. She enjoyed gardening and music, and she loved to talk to people and to visit with her friends. She was always happy, and always had a big friendly smile for everybody.
Jean was always busy cooking, cleaning, shopping. The simple things in life are the things that brought her joy, like picking blueberries. Jean’s grandchildren were her special love.
Jean is survived by her daughters, Cathy Chartrand of Dryden, and Bonnie (Brian) Hatch of Dryden; son, Eddie Wall of Dryden; grandchildren, Eddy Chartrand Jr. and Maddison Hatch; sisters, Mazie (Cy) Russell of Winnipeg, Man., and Nettie-Ann (Dennis) Coleman of International Falls, Mn.; and brother, Bill (Donna) Wasykowski of Fort Frances.
Jean was predeceased by her brother, John Wasykowski, in 1952.
There was no visitation as cremation has taken place.
A memorial service to celebrate Jean’s life was held Thursday, June 8, 2000 at the Dryden Community Funeral Home at 2 p.m., with Rev. Mary Mennell officiating.
Interment of ashes will be held at a later date.
