My condolences to the family. Jean and John used to come in every morning for their gazette when they lived on Dibble street. Such a sweet couple.

Jean came to work at the law firm where I was a young lawyer in the early '70. She became the first corporate paralegal in the firm and we worked closely together for over 20 years. She was smart, thorough and a hard worker. Everyone appreciated her including the clients.
Although I have not seen Jean since she moved back to Ontario, I will always remember her with great fondness.

I lived on Windmill Point Road , east of Wexford when growing up attending school. I spent many hours enjoying riding our horses, toboganing, swimming in the quarry, playing at the elevator and much other fun stuff. My deepest sympathy to families of Betty, Bobbie, Donnie and Jeannie. Our deepest sympathy to the King families. We still see "Leroy" often.
Our deepest sympathy to all.
Al and Jean Hanes
