XJean was always special to us as she kept our families connected by planning their vacations to B.C most every summer even when their family was young and I know how difficult it is to travel with young children. Joan and I also have very fond memories of our cruise holidays with Jean and Don with all the great card games and her wonderful jokes! One of our greatest trips was our tour of Eastern Canada with all our siblings. Jean was a great host and a wonderful sister. I will miss her in many ways. Our condolences to Don, Donna, Janice and Elaine and all your families.

Fond memories of Jean will always be of her as the beautiful bride at their October wedding in 1952. As the six year old "baby" brother I had the honour of being the ring bearer. So it was shocking to me that the Minister would announce that Jean was now Don"s "awful" wedded wife. But it was true -she was "awesome" and "wonder-ful"! During the wedding reception and dance that followed, Jean asked me for the heel-toe polka. Great, "but what do you have in your mouth?" she asked. Now, this little kid from Sumas Prairie had never seen fancy cut sandwiches ,let alone the strange looking pickles each precisely poked with a toothpick. I thought it impolite not to finish everything on my plate and had harboured an olive in my mouth for a good while, afraid to swallow something that strange. Jean had rescued me again! The many trips back to B.C. usually coordinated by Jean were always special and kept the family connection close. Her last trip in 2018 to attend our 50th wedding anniversary was really meaningful to Jackie and myself. It was apparent that her health was failing and we all realized it may well be our last time as siblings all together, this side of heaven. What a vibrant lady and such a genuine, marvelous sister to us all. God bless, Ron and Jackie McFee.

I have such fond memories of Jean. My parents and Jean and Don were great friends and growing up our families spent a lot of time together. I loved her sense of humor and tidy house she kept. I still remember her mopping the floor on our way out the door! Sending love to the family and know I am thinking of you. XO. I hope she is having a great game of cards tonight with my parents. They must have been eagerly awaiting her arrival!

I am very sorry that Jean Seraphim has passed from this world, but I will always remember the warm friendship our families shared. My parents Maureen and Brian Berry became good friends with Don and Jean in the 1950s and shared many interests from metallurgy to square dancing. As recent immigrants to the USA, without other family members here, they started a tradition of spending holidays together. Growing up in the 1960s and 70s, my brother and I delighted in the company of our “cousins” Donna, Janice and Elaine. We eagerly awaited these family visits, often rushing off to the basement or back yard for a game of “cats and mice” while the grown-ups were left in peace. Auntie Jean was admired for her lively energy as well as her wonderful cooking, and we benefited from both. The holiday feasts alternated between our homes, with lots of other visits in between. The years pass so quickly and as my parents and my brother and his family moved to other states, we saw less of each other. The last time we visited was in the fall of 2008. My parents had come up from North Carolina to visit with my family in NY, and we drove to Vestal to see Don and Jean for lunch. After serving us a delicious lunch, Auntie Jean convinced us to stay for dinner too, so that Donna and Elaine could be there. I am so glad we had that time together. I extend my heartfelt condolences to Uncle Don and to all the family. I know you will miss her terribly but that her spirit lives on in many children and grandchildren.
