JEAN CAMPBELL MICHAEL (published on August 21, 2010)

JEAN CAMPBELL MICHAEL June 4, 1926 August 5, 2010 Jean Michael passed away quietly on August 5, 2010 while vacationing in the United Kingdom. Jean was predeceased by her mother Ella and her father Bill. She was born in Selkirk and raised in Petersfield on the family farm. From early childhood Jean loved the horses, the dogs and all the farm activities. Eventually she took a major role in running and operating the farm. Jean attended St. Mary's Academy, graduated with a B.A. and eventually a B.Ed from the University of Manitoba. She began her teaching career in Tyndall, moved to Selkirk and eventually taught for Seven Oaks for many years. She was a dedicated, conscientious teacher whom many students will remember fondly. Perhaps Jean's happiest times were spent at the horse farm on #8 Hwy. Seeing foals born that eventually she saw race at Assiniboia Downs gave her many hours of pleasure, especially when they won. Her last few years were quieter, but when given the opportunity to fly to the UK to see all her Junor and Michael relatives, Jean chose to go. By all accounts she had a fabulous time. Jean's cousin, Sir Duncan Michael, was with her at her passing in Dumferline, Scotland. She will be missed by all her relatives and many lifelong friends. A Memorial Mass will be held on Monday, August 30, 2010 at 10:30 a.m. in the St. Anne's Roman Catholic Church, Petersfield, Manitoba with Fr. Dado Parrenas officiating. Interment of ashes will take place in the Kildonan Presbyterian Cemetery. Crossing The Bar Sunset and evening star, And one clear call for me! And may there be no moaning of the bar, When I put out to sea, But such a tide as moving seems asleep, Too full for sound and foam, When that which drew from out the boundless deep Turns again home. Twilight and evening bell, And after that the dark! And may there be no sadness of farewell, When I embark; For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place The flood may bear me far, I hope to see my Pilot face to face When I have crossed the bar. Alfred Lord Tennyson Gilbart Funeral Home, Selkirk in care of arrangements.
