JENNIFER MONTGOMERY (published on August 21, 2010)

JENNIFER MONTGOMERY August 12, 1935 - August 18, 2010 After a valiant battle with cancer, Jennifer passed away at the Grace Hospice on August 18, 2010. She is predeceased by her first husband Don Nicholson in 1957; her second husband Jack Montgomery in 2005; her father Frederik Marchuk in 1968; her mother Mary Alexandra Marchuk; sister Liz in 1995; her brothers Peter Marchuk in 1959, Bill Marchuk in 2009, and George Marchuk in 20l0; as well as her nephew Michael Marchuk in 1973. She is survived by her sister Mary Chernesky, niece Sandra Taylor, niece Rosemarie Finockio, great-niece Kristin Vaughn and great-nephew Glenn Finockio. Jennifer began her career as a legal secretary to an executive of Anglo American Exploration, and during that time married Don Nicholson. Following Don's death, she enrolled in flight attendant training, graduating in 1958. She married Jack Montgomery in 1972. Jennifer appreciated the lovely family she became a part of when she married Jack. After her retirement in 1982, Jennifer spent much of her time with friends both long time, and new ones she made over the years. They are too numerous to mention, but she wanted you to know how much she loved and treasured each one of you for the special and unique individuals you are. Jennifer was always there for others with her warmth and compassion. She felt joy for her friends' good fortunes, sadness for their difficult times. Her kindness and ever present thoughtfulness were the hallmarks of Jennifer's character. She will be sorely missed by many of us. A deeply spiritual woman, she lived her life in service of God and her fellow human beings, one day at a time. Jennifer wanted to extend her heartfelt appreciation to those friends who were with her and helped her throughout her illness, most especially Linda, Jacquie, Donna and Heather. She wanted to thank Dr. Pat Harris, Grace Hospital Oncology nurses, and CancerCare as well as to Dr. Nassar Ahmed at Health Sciences Centre and the staff at the Grace Hospice. God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, The courage to change the things I can, And the wisdom to know the difference. For those who care to, donations may be made to the charity of your choice in Jennifer's memory. A service will be held on Wednesday, August 25, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home, 4000 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg. Chapel Lawn 885-9715
