OLLINGER, Jean Margaret

Dec. 12, 1921- Mar. 18, 2009

We sadly announce that Jean Margaret Ollinger (Small), a strong woman of faith, passed away gently with her priest and family by her side at the Menno Hospital on March 18/09. Jean was born outside Craven Saskatchewan.

She was predeceased by her husband Oscar and son Lorne. Jean is survived by daughters Linda (John), Louise (Norm), Yvonne (Chris), and grandchildren Carrie-Ann (Randy), Chad, Lisa, Carissa, Nicholas (Kelly), Kelsey and great grandchildren Jordan, Natalie, Paige, and Gabrielle. Jean’s siblings Sam (Evelyn), Bill (Agnes), Nellie, and predeceased by Beth.

Though illness slowly stole the twinkle in her eye and her loving smile, Jean taught us lessons of strength and dignity everyday. For those lessons and many others we are eternally thankful.

We would like to thank the Menno Hospital staff for their loving gentle care.

Mass will be held on Monday, March 23/09, 11AM, at St Ann’s Parish in Abbotsford. In lieu of flowers donations to St Ann’s would be appreciated.
