November 28, 1925 – June 3, 2020
Jean Louise Ramsay (nee Ferguson) passed away in her sleep the morning of June 3, 2020. Born November 28, 1925, she was the fourth child in a family of nine children born and raised on the Ferguson homestead near Dugald Manitoba. This farm was handed down through three generations starting in 1882. She was extremely proud of this heritage.
In her teens, World War II started and at 17, she was trained to teach school due to a shortage of teachers. Meeting her future spouse at her sister’s wedding, she married Gordon Francis Ramsay April 1955. A year later, she gave birth to their son, Guy Ferguson Ramsay. Through their fifty-one years of marriage, she continued teaching in Winnipeg until the family moved to BC in the mid-sixties for Gordon’s work in farm machinery sales.
They retired to Abbotsford where they made many friends at their church, Avonlea seniors’ housing, and Kiwanis. Even after Gordon passed away in 2006, she continued to cherish those connections. Jean moved to Chase, BC in 2018, to be closer to her son.
Surviving Jean is her son Guy (Gerry), grandchildren Scott (Sally) Robertson & his daughter Maddy, Mark Ramsay (Steffi), Heather Ramsay (Kyle), sisters Marianne Richards and Joyce Atkinson, brother Bob Ferguson (Carrie), and sister-in-law Jane Ramsay and numerous nieces and nephews.
The family wishes to extend a heart-felt thank you to Parkside Assisted Living Community, Dr. Ben Robinson, and Kamloops Hospice for their loving care of Mom.
