Jean Mara Phoenix

November 11, 1928 – October 20, 2022
Jean Mara Phoenix (nee Lumsden) passed away peacefully on October 20,2022 three weeks shy of her 94th birthday. She was born in Vancouver, BC. Jean and Kelvin were married April 19, 1951 and lived for 71 years in a God-blessed marriage.
Jean used her gift of hospitality with her love of people. Her life taught us to love and respect each other. The love of playing the piano for 80 years and the organ for years was for the love of God and family.
All her family; Kelvin, son Fred (Janet) , David (Elsie), grandchildren, Shelby, Johnathan, Aaron and Lisa and great grand-children Ethan and Shiloh.
Jean and Kelvin agreed that the best appreciated time of life together, was their years working as volunteer missionaries in India and the years serving at Pan African Christian College in Nairobi and the 2 terms at the Pentecostal Guest house.
Our family wishes to express our sincere thanks to the exceptional care given by the entire staff at Menno Hospital in Abbotsford BC.
To celebrate Jean’s life and 94th birthday, the family is having an afternoon Tea between 1-4 pm Nov 11 at Fred and Janet’s home at 2230 Mountain Dr. Abbotsford.
