RUSSELL, Jean Mary (Fraser) - Jean passed away peacefully on March 12, 2014, in her 87th year, after a brief illness. She was predeceased by her loving husband Jack, by a few days only and the loss of both her and her husband leaves a huge void in the family. She was a loving, caring mother to John (Doreen), Robert (Rachel), Barry (Gail), Barbara (Andy), and Janice (Graeme), and a proud grandma to her thirteen grandchildren and three great- grandchildren. Jean was best known for her cheerful, outgoing nature and her ability to see the best in everyone and every situation. She was a genuinely happy person. Her family and friends were very important to her, and she enjoyed socializing. She made great efforts to keep in touch with those she knew well. She and Jack did everything together and were seldom seen on their own. They lived a long life together and made the most of every minute. Visitation will take place at Thompson Funeral Home, 530 Industrial Parkway South, Aurora on Thursday, March 13, 2014 from 7 to 9 p.m. Funeral service for both Jean and Jack will be held in the chapel on Friday, March 14, 2014 at 11 a.m. with reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Southlake Regional Health Centre Foundation. Online condolences may be made at www.thompsonfh-aurora.com
