Jean Burt

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend, at the age of 87 years at Shuswap Lake General Hospital.

Jean Doris Burt (nee Clarke) was born in Blackpool, England on April 15th 1929, 4th youngest of 5 siblings.  She lived through the dark years of the Second World War, which started a lifelong compassion for the plight of children in the world.

As a small child she was fascinated with the vast wilderness of Canada, and at the young age of 23 she boarded a ship and never looked back.

Mom spent her life with her loving husband of 61 years. Friend to all, her kindness and compassion will be forever remembered.  Lovingly missed by Don, her husband, 3 children – Terry (Greg), Lesley, Richard (Carmen), 8 grandchildren – Amber, Aaron, Krista, Georgia, Zachary, Mackenzie, Madison and Logan and 2 great-grandchildren – Irma Jean and Malawi.

A service celebrating Jean’s life will be held on Saturday July 16, 2016 at 2pm at Notch Hill Hall, Sorrento, BC
