Jean (Bugsey) SKILLEN

Born September 18, 1928 in Spirit River, Alberta.

Jean passed away peacefully at Chemainus Health Care Centre on March 3, 2005. Jean is survived by daughters, Linda (Dan) McDonald, Lenora Duane, Heather (Jim) Baker, Christal McTavish. Stepchildren: Bonnie (Murray) Brown, David (Debbie) Skillen, Randy Skillen and numerous grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Before Jean’s illness, she enjoyed her retirement years on Pender Island, reading, fishing, gardening and walking the many beaches. Volunteering at the library, “New to You”, and Ladies Auxiliary at the Legion. Jean was an outgoing, compassionate person. She will be sadly missed – until we meet again.

Respecting Jean’s wishes she will be cremated and there will be no funeral service. A family memorial at a later date.

Special thanks to Dr. Broere for his years of devoted care to Jean and al lthe staff at Chemainus Health Care Centre for their excellent, compassionate care.
