Husband, Jean (nee Minnette)

Jean Husband went to be with the Lord on May 22, 2015 at 2:57 pm at Vancouver at the age of 67. Jean was born and raised and went to school in Salmon Arm, BC. She started her family here in 1966 when Kenny was born. Jeanne was born next in 1968. Mid 1970’s, Jean moved to Chilliwack and started her real estate career. In 1997 she moved to Nanaimo and continued as a realtor there. She loved her home and family very much but also had a wandering heart that took her to many places in this world. She loved to travel to new places and try new adventures. Jean was a mountaineer, a marathon runner, a skydiver and traveler. She was fearless and not afraid but she also respected life and danger. She was beautiful, brave and strong. Jean is lovingly remembered by her husband Al Husband and her children Jeanne (daughter) and Bob Mailer in Chilliwack, BC, Ken (son) and Michele Robinson in Mission, BC, her grandchildren Mercedes and Jonah Robinson in Watson, Saskatchewan and Dalton Mailer in Chilliwack, BC, Esther (sister) and Andy Caldow in Anglemont, BC and Evelyn (sister) in Nanaimo, BC. Jean was predeceased by Alfred Minnette (father) Salmon Arm, BC and Evelyn Minnette (mother) Salmon Arm, BC.
