JEAN CARTER (published on January 12, 2010)

JEAN CARTER It is with heavy hearts that we share the passing of our mother Jean Carter (nee Fisher), on January 9, 2010 at the Selkirk and District General Hospital. Jean was born on September 2, 1937 to Lorne and Elizabeth Fisher and was raised on the family farm in Netley, Manitoba. Left to cherish Mom's memory are her children Sheila, Barbara (Ken) Ramsay, Donna (Kevin) Pennell, Kenneth (Sasha) and Dugald (Lori); grandchildren Adam Ramsay, Stacey (Allan) Kent (nee Ramsay), Gordon, James, Amy, Andrew, Vance and Eli Carter; great-grandchildren Fiona and Caoimhe Ramsay and Hailey Kent. Mom's sisters and brothers, Ada (Karl) Schalk, Betty Schofield (Don), Peggy (Raymond) Janisch, Irene (Jerry) Schmidt, Jim (Barbara) and Joe; sisters-in-law Elaine and Alice and brother-in-law Les Cosens. Predeceased by her husband William Edwin Carter in April of 2003, her parents Lorne and Elizabeth, sister Patricia and brothers Harry, Jack and Bob. Mom was the eldest of 11 children raised on the farm in Netley. She moved to Winnipeg and worked for Eatons before she met Dad, married and started her family. She loved when she could have all of her family together for special occasions. She would start cooking days before hand to be sure that there was something that everyone would enjoy. Mom enjoyed curling in her early years and she was the Dispatcher for the St. Andrews Fire Department for 23 years. She dedicated much of her life supporting the Fire Department along with our Dad. Mom also enjoyed the time she spent at the Selkirk Legion, Branch 42 as a member of the Over 60 Club. She made many friends and really enjoyed the days that the club would get together for lunch and an afternoon of music and conversation. Her family would like to thank the Staff at the Selkirk and District General Hospital for their support and care of Mom during her brief stay. Also thank you to Arlene Robinson, Coordinator of Palliative Care for the Selkirk Hospital for her kind and supportive words during this difficult time. A Service of Remembrance will be held on Wednesday, January 13, 2010, at 11:00 a.m. in the St. Georges Anglican Church, Wakefield MB, with Rev. Canon Godfrey Mawejje officiating. Reception will follow. Interment of ashes in the Parish Cemetery will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Selkirk and District Palliative Care Program at The Selkirk and District General Hospital. If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever. Gilbart Funeral Home, Selkirk in care of arrangements.
