July 28, 1945 – March 28, 2021
Born: July 28th, 1945 in North Bay, Ontario. Passed: March 28th, 2021 in Williams Lake, BC
On March 28th, 2021 Jeannine Alma Morgan lost her battle with cancer. She was 75 years old.
She was predeceased by her husband, Richard Islwyn. She is fondly remembered by her son, Julian Islwyn(Cindy), and her grandchildren Helena Rose(Matthew), and Rhys Islwyn(Hayley).
She also leaves behind her nephew Christopher (Stel la), and her nieces, Sarah and Sian (Robert), as well as her brother in law Norman (Carolyn) and her sister in law, Bronwen (John).
Jeannine was born in North Bay, Ontario, the only child to Paul and Leda Sabourin. She married Richard in 1966, and moved to Prince Rupert in 1968 where their only child, Julian was born.
The family also lived in North Vancouver and Pitt Meadows, where Jeannine progressed in her career designing computer payroll systems.
Jeannine moved to Williams Lake in July 2003 to live with her family after suffering a stroke that left her disabled. Despite physical difficulties, she continued to participate in the things she enjoyed, such as local choir groups and she also taught for a time at the Elder College.
She made friends in her new town, most notably Mary and Bernie LittleJohn. She spent her last years keeping comfortable in her home. Jeannine occupied her time on her computer, listening to music, welcoming visitors, enjoying Jeopardy, and caring for her cats.
Jeannine was a kind and generous soul who always tried to maintain positivity and soldier on, even during the most trying times of her earlier and later life. She supported her family and was very happy to be able to see her grandchildren grow up and be a part of their lives.
There will be no service due to the Covid restrictions. Her wish was to be cremated and her ashes laid to rest alongside her husband Richard’s in a place they both enjoyed together.
For those who would like to pay some type of tribute to her, a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Williams Lake District Branch of the SPCA would be greatly appreciated.
Good bye Nana. All Things Must Pass.
