MOORE; EDNA MAE JEAN. FEBRUARY 9, 1922 – MARCH 19, 2014. On March 19th, 2014, Edna Mae Jean Moore (nee Nesbitt) loving wife of James Addison (deceased) passed away peacefully at the age of 92 with family at her side. Born in Toronto on February 9, 1922 to parents Robert and Jane Nesbitt (nee Dowd), Jean married Walter Kingsmill Tingey in 1942 and was blessed with a daughter, Marilyn. She remarried in 1946 and had a second daughter Daphne (deceased). Jean played badminton in Ontario and spent many weekends canoeing in Algonquin Park with her family. She had a great love of music and enjoyed playing the piano. In 1970, Jean and her husband adopted two children, Cindy and Steven. The family lived in many locations in Canada and the United States, before settling in British Columbia where Jean became an avid golfi ng enthusiast, eventually winning the Ladies Championship at Newlands Golf Course. She also had a great love of Labrador dogs, an important part of her life. Jean was a wonderful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She
was blessed with an extended family that included four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Affectionately known as GG, she will be sadly missed by her daughter Marilyn Cole (Harry), daughter Cindy Meade (Troy), son Steve (Janie), grandchildren Mike Henry (Diane), Susan Gaytmenn (Jonn), Tara Heacock (Kurt) and Carley Moore, and great-grandchildren Ashley, Dallas, Cole, Kaeden, and Rian. She will also be missed by her sister Muriel MacIsaac and her family, and nieces and nephews.
Her generosity extended beyond her family to the Mission Gospel, the
Salvation Army and the SPCA amongst others. The family would like to acknowledge the staff at The Cottages Pavilion, the nurses at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre (Baker 2 section), and the Abbotsford Alzheimer Society’s Support Group for the kindness they provided in making Jean’s later years more enjoyable.
For those who know and loved Jean, she will be forever in our hearts. She was a gentle woman who always tried to do the best for others and will be fondly remembered as being “29 years and some months” old. It was Jean’s wish that the family hold a private gathering in celebration of her life. Online condolences to the family may be made at
