December 19, 1928 – November 20, 2021
Jean Dale (nee Mares) passed away peacefully at the age of 92.
She was predeceased by her husband John in 2016.
She is survived by her sister Rita, son Robert (Karen), daughter Carol (David) and grandchildren, James, Zoe, Christopher and Brian plus many family, friends and students.
Jean had a happy childhood in rural Lancashire, England. She was bright, adventurous and enjoyed travel.
She came to Mission in 1956 as an exchange teacher, married a local dairy farmer and became a wonderful mother. Jean taught at Nicomen Island Elementary for many years, had a colourful classroom, fun sports days and keen students.
She always had a dog by her side and every dog loved Jean best. She enjoyed driving around the farm on her golf cart to visit the animals and watch her grandchildren grow.
We were all lucky to have her in our lives and will miss her. Obituary
