Predeceased by her husband, Howard, son David and her brother, Reverend Ken Morrison. Special friend to Martha Ciuciura and loving aunt to many nieces and nephews.

Born in Stratford, Ontario on May 01, 1925 to Helen and Samuel Morrison and raised by Helen (Nell) with step-father Frank Dent. Jean loved being a homemaker during her working life. She was a talented seamstress, knitter and home-cook. Church served a very important role in Jean's life. She was a member of the Stanley Park Baptist Church in Kitchener, and later in life, the Hantsport Baptist Church. Jean had a long list of people she prayed for every night.
