DOROTHY MARGARET “JEAN” WILSON
Surrounded by her loving family at the end of a beautiful life for which she was very grateful DM Jean Wilson passed away on Tuesday July 24, 2018 at the age of 77 years.
Jean will be missed by her husband of 51 years of marriage, Richard; their children Laura Wilson, Pam Wilson and Katie Van Ryckeghem (her husband Chris); and granddaughters Nicole and Jessica. She is also survived by her sisters Beth and Maureen; nieces; nephews; grandnieces and grandnephews who she loved and adored. She will be welcomed into heaven by her Mom and Dad Marge and Kirk MacDonald; brother Kim; brother-in-law Jim and her granddaughter Amanda Van Ryckeghem who is standing there wide-eyed, big smile, arms extended and curling her fingers waving Jean in for a long-awaited snuggle hug.
Jean was born in Winnipeg and lived here much of her life. She held a variety of jobs including Entertainment Reporter for the Winnipeg Tribune, HSC Medical Records and Support Staff at the U of M Dept. of Economics. She always said the most fun she had in life was raising their family with her husband whom she loved dearly…. until they had grandchildren, which proved to be even more fun.
She was an avid reader, an enthusiastic traveller, an amateur quilter and someone who had an incredible ability to make beautiful lifelong friendships. Jean was a member of the First Presbyterian Church and drew strength from her faith.
Jean’s Funeral Service will be held on Monday, July 30, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. in the First Presbyterian Church, 61 Picardy Place.
Words cannot express our gratitude to the St. Boniface 6th floor nurses & health care aides who were not only professional but showed Mom such kindness and compassion.
Flowers are gratefully declined. If friends so desire, donations may be made to the Breast Cancer Foundation, Ronald McDonald House or the Charleswood Senior Knitters.
