JENNIFER (JEAN) MARIE EDEN
September 29, 1931 – March 30, 2019
On Saturday, March 30, 2019, Mom passed away at the Grace Hospital at the age of 87 years.
She will be lovingly remembered by her six children, Mitchell (Debbie), Tracy (Steven) Shawcross, Malcolm, Kirsten (Kris) Kubin, Marshall (Karla), Heather (Mark) Potapoff; her beloved grandchildren, Lisa, Erica, Kyle, Dylan, Tyler, Meaghan, Riley, Jesse, Mackenzie, Caleb, Cody; three great-grandchildren, Caleigh, Oliver and Cole; also Tyler and Hailey and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Melvin (Mel) in September 2011.
Jean was born in Olha, Manitoba to parents Nickloas and Telka Stadnyk. Mom had three brothers, Peter, Matthew and Michael. Mom met and married Mel Eden in December of 1957 where they lived in Erickson, MB. They later moved to Winnipeg, MB in 1966 and resided in Charleswood. She was active in the Charleswood Legion Ladies Auxiliary, Swedish Canadian Home for seniors, and her community.
Mom was an excellent cook and baker; there was always the scent of fresh bread when walking into her home. She loved to dance whenever and wherever the mood struck her. She could always be found tapping her foot or humming a tune. She loved her gardens and took great pride in them.
Mom found tremendous enjoyment with her family, friends and neighbors. She was always available for a visit and you never left empty-handed. She always made sure you went home with something homemade and delicious.
In her words, it was never say “goodbye” – it was always “see you later”. We will see you later Mom.
The family extends a heartfelt thank you to the skilled and caring medical professionals on the fifth floor of the Grace Hospital for their care and kindness to Mom.
An immediate family service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in Mom’s memory may be made to The Heart and Stroke Foundation; The Swedish Canadian Home for seniors, 5419 Roblin Blvd., Winnipeg, MB R3R 0G8; or the Charleswood Legion, 6003 Roblin Blvd., Winnipeg, MB R3R 0G8.
