SOPER, Margaret Jean - It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a dear Wife, Mother, Gramma and GG on January 5, 2013, surrounded by the love of her family. Jean is survived by Ron, her devoted and loving husband of 58 years. She will be deeply missed by her children Valerie (James Clubine), Robert (Linda), Craig, and Gary (Nola Fattore). She was the adored and adoring Gramma to Shane and Marissa (Joe Ponikowski), Chelsea and Breanna, Lauren and Kurt, and Lindsey and Reid. She was delighted to be GG to great- grandchildren Joseph and Maia Ponikowski. Her strength of character and wonderful sense of humour will not be forgotten by all who knew her. Jean began her nursing career at the Shouldice Clinic in 1952 as a surgical nurse, moving on to become head nurse. Her relationship with friends and colleagues from Shouldice as well as her various volunteer, bridge and euchre groups, span many decades, a tribute to the loyal and wonderful person she was. Jean truly was in a class of her own and her memory will be cherished. A service in celebration of Jean's life will be held on Thursday, January 10, 2013 at Northminster United Church, 255 Finch Ave. West, North York at 1:00 p.m. with visiting from 12:00 p.m. A reception will follow at the church. The family have requested donations be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or the Alzheimer Society of Canada. Online condolences may be expressed at
