REID, Eleanor Jean December 13, 1913 - November 16, 2012 Jean (mummum) passed quietly and comfortably surrounded by her family, on Friday, November 16 at Saanich Peninsula Hospital Extended Care 2, Jean was just shy of her 99th birthday. Jean was born in Victoria, eldest daughter of Percy and Nellie Fryatt. Predeceased by her husband Doug (Bops) and her sister Elsie Brett. Jean leaves behind her daughter and son-in-law Marilyn & Ron Matthews, grandchildren Deborah McKnight (Mark Alexander), Denise Tregear (Neil), Vince Matthews (Pam), Craig Matthews (Bonita), Great-grand children, Britt, Matt, Baylie, Brianne, Jesse, Stephanie, Justin, Shelby, great-great granddaughter Olivia and (adopted) daughter Kathy Parry. Jean loved traveling in their motor home with her husband Doug, working in the garden at their home on Chinook Pl. in Sidney and Piers Island, and cooking for the family, her apple pies were yummy. Mummum and Bops will be making beautiful gardens together again. Look up you might see them in the clouds. The family wishes to thank all the staff at Saanich Peninsula Hosp. for their great care of Jean. Jean requested no service. A family tea will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to Saanich Peninsula Hospital in Jean's name would be appreciated.
