May 25, 1929 – May 31, 2018
Our treasured mother, Jeannette left this world on May 31, 2018 just days before her 89th birthday. We miss her dearly but she is now resting peacefully in the arms of our Lord.

Jeannette is survived by her husband of 64 years, Paul, three children; Darlene Lynn (Brian) Penny, Brian Douglas and Douglas Paul; four grandchildren, Alicia (Bryan) Goodkey, Grant, Kevin & Kyle Rollheiser and one great grandchild, Kensi. She was predeceased by another child, Terry Rueben in 1979.

Mom’s major focus in life was her family. She worked tirelessly to provide for us all and helped guide us through life successfully. She taught us all the value of high standards, hard work, and that with focus we could achieve anything we wanted.

Jeannette started her adult life as a nurse at Chilliwack General and later at Coqualeetza Hospital. She also supported our dad’s desire to run a travel agency taking it over from Mr. Franklin Roblin. Roblin Travel is a successful adventure after 70 years and it is now being run by son Brian Douglas.

With failing health, Jeannette and Paul moved to Mission year ago to be closer to daughter and care giver Darlene. With compassionate care from our friends at Chartwell, both Cedarbrooke Chateau and later Carrington House, from Fraser Health and from Pharmasave, Jeannette stabilized for awhile. Her final days were spent under the loving care of the Christine Morrison Hospice in Mission. We wish to thank them all so very much for the help and love they showed our Mom during her final year. From the bottom of our hearts we appreciate their help in making our precious Mom’s last year pleasant and peaceful.

Rest well Mom, you have earned a peaceful and happy sleep. Thank you for everything you have provided and taught us over the years. We love you Mom.
