JEAN ROCKETT Peacefully in her 78th year Jean Simpson Downie Rockett passed away at Victoria Hospital. Will be missed by her husband George Stanley Rockett Jr. and her children Janice Roselle (Tim), Brittney (Myles) and Brendon, Raymond Rockett (Agata), Amanda, Cody, Carly and Denise MCCormack (Jason), Brydan and Tryton as well as many loving nieces, nephews and extended family. Predeceased by her twin sister Margaret Enright, brother Bill Downie and her loving parents Isabelle and Matthew Downie. She was the most selfless person and took away any fear of making any life choices with a smile and taught us all to move forward and dive in with no regrets. She was born in Toronto, Ontario in 1935 and lived there until her marriage to George in 1954 and moved to London to continue to raise her family. Thank you to all the staff at Victoria Hospital for their loving care and comfort. Friends and family will be received at Forest Lawn Memorial Chapel, 1997 Dundas St. E., on Thursday, January 24th from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. A funeral service will be held in the chapel on Friday at 3 p.m. Donations to the Alzheimer Society or Heart & Stroke Foundation are greatly appreciated.
