JEAN MARIE BAILEY (published on January 16, 2010)

JEAN MARIE BAILEY (Bialek) (nee Zygarlicki) December 30, 1913 - January 12, 2010 Peacefully at the Grace Hospital on Tuesday, January 12, 2010, Jean Bailey passed away at the age of 96 years. Remaining to forever cherish Jean's memory are her children Evangeline (Eve) Milton (Peter), Ed Bailey (Judy), Rose Marie Yauk, Stella Bailey (Allan Buss); grandchildren Richard Milton, Nancy Doe (Jim), John Milton (Katherine), Laurie Mernett (Glen), Erin Bailey (Steve Vinden), Theresa Lomas (Steve), Evelyn Yauk (Dave Hanson), Noah Yauk (Janel); great-grandchildren Cole and Jessica Milton, Jordan and Jeremy Doe, Samantha Milton, Fiona and Finnian Vinden, Sam Lomas, Nora Hanson; and her sister Nellie Chay. She was predeceased by Bill, her husband of 50 years, in April 1984 and her son-in-law Tom Yauk in June 2009. Jean was born and grew up on a farm near Garson, Manitoba, the seventh of 12 children of Caroline and Cazimir Zygarlicki who had emigrated from Poland. She farmed with her husband Bill in the Tyndall and Beausejour areas. In 1949, they moved to Winnipeg. Mainly a homemaker, Jean especially enjoyed her yard and garden. She also enjoyed marathon cooking (perogies and cabbage rolls), doing needlepoint, hosting family dinners, indulging her two cats Toosha and Patches, and playing bingo with her friends. She will be remembered for her independent spirit, her generosity to family and friends, and her hard work for the task at hand. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, January 19 at 10:00 a.m. in the St. John Brebeuf Roman Catholic Church, 1707 John Brebeuf Place. For those who wish viewing will be held prior to Mass. A reception will take place in the St. John Brebeuf Parish Hall immediately following Mass. Interment will follow in the Assumption Roman Catholic Cemetery, 3990 Portage Avenue at the Perimeter Highway. The family gives special thanks to the WRHA Homecare staff who enabled Jean to remain in her house after her stroke, and to the staff at Tuxedo Villa Personal Care Home for their wonderful care and support during her last years. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba, 10 - 120 Donald Street, Winnipeg, MB, R3C 4G2, the Winnipeg Humane Society, 45 Hurst Way, Winnipeg, MB, R3T 0R3, or to a charity of your choice.
