Jessie was born in Mountain Road, Manitoba and moved to B.C. in 1948

and married Louis in 1951 where they raised two childredn in the

Cowichan Valley.  Mom worked at the King’s Daughter Hospital and then

changed careers and worked at the Duncan Forest Nursery for 30 years.

She loved gardening and spending time with family always making sure

they were well fed, she was a great Ukrainian cook.  There are not enough

words to describe how caring and selfless Mom was throughout her entire

life, & her imprint on her family and friends will be remembered and passed

down for generations.  We would like to thank the staff at Cerwydden Care
