After a long and full life, Jean Cartwright (nee: Rose) of Blairmore, Alberta passed away peacefully at the Crowsnest Pass Continuing Care Centre on March 13, 2019, mere days away from her 93rd birthday.
Jean Rose was born on March 17, 1926 in Coleman, Alberta and remained living in the Crowsnest Pass her entire life. She appreciated the beauty and majesty of this mountainous area.
Jean had many interests and enjoyed several activities throughout her lifetime especially, baking, knitting and tending to her flowers and plants - her fondness for her African Violets was obvious from her consistent and colourful blooming display. She will be forever remembered for her delicious homemade bread, which she continued to bake well into her late eighties. She was an accomplished knitter of sweaters, mittens, dishcloths and Barbie clothes of which she shared with her family and friends. Jean was also a long-standing member of the Ladies’ Guild of St. Luke’s Anglican Church and her faith was her quiet strength. Nothing brought Mom more pleasure than spending time with her friends and family, especially her many grandchildren. She will be deeply missed and fondly remembered by all who knew her.
Left to mourn her passing and celebrate her life are her daughters, Judy Megli, Marilyn (Len) Blanchette, Susan (Mike) Tkachuk; her son, Randy (Shar) Cartwright; her nine grandchildren; her seventeen great grandchildren and two great, great grandchildren.
She was predeceased by her husband, Joe Cartwright; her parents, Thomas & Elizabeth Rose; her brother, Dick Fisher; and her son in-law, Ken Megli.
As per Mom’s request, there will be a private family gathering honouring and celebrating her life.
The family would like to sincerely thank everyone for the kind, thoughtful and comforting care that Mom received during her stay at the CNP Continuing Care Centre. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by the CNP Health Fdn. “Continuing Care” program (PO Box 455, Blairmore, AB T0K 0E0).
