Jean Elinor (nee Minkly) PHIPPEN

It is with great sadness the family announces the passing of their mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother on November 25, 2006

Jean was pre–deceased by her father, mother, sisters, and half-brothers and half-sisters.

She leaves to cherish her memory, her children: Nancy (Richard), Christine (Owen), Robert (Debbie), and David (Carol);  her grandchildren:  Eric, Dana, Bria, Robert, Adam, Heather, and Jason, her great-grandson, Tye; and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Jean was a Registered Nurse for over 40 years at Vancouver General, Royal Columbian, Riverview, and George Derby Hospitals, devoting her life to the care of others.

She enjoyed the outdoors, travelling, bird-watching, and friendship of the Rosedale Seniors. Grandma Jean was famous for her cookies and pies.

Mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer nine years ago and has been an inspirational survivor.

The family wishes to thank the dedicated staff of Fraser Cheam Home Support, the Bradley Centre, and Dr. Bright for their fine care and kindnesses.

A private family gathering will be held to celebrate Mom’s life at a later date.
