Jean was born in Flesherton to Jack and Annie MacMillan on May 7, 1939. She attended school in Flesherton and graduated from Nursing School in Kitchener in 1959. Jean married the love of her life, Garnet, on November 5, 1960. After retiring from a successful nursing career at Markdale Hospital, she remained active in Kinettes/K40 and the Ladies Group at St Johns United Church, and had more time for knitting, Sequence, and whatever TV she wanted to watch (being the owner of the remote). Before and after her stroke, she was always an enthusiastic fan at every sporting event of every grandson she could get to, always getting her Timmies quota along the way.
The family encourages you to join them in celebrating Jean’s life, via facebook.com/fawcettfunerahome on Sunday, June 7 at 1:30pm. She will be laid to rest with her husband at the Evergreen Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be gratefully appreciated. Online donations and condolences at www.fawcettfuneralhome.ca 888-924-2810
