Jean “Jennie” GALLINGER

GALLINGER, Jean “Jennie”

March 20, 2014It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Jennie Gallinger in Campbell River on March 20, 2014. She was predeceased by her 1st husband, Doug Brown; 2nd husband, Walter Gallinger and brothers, Paul and Mike Bolton. She is survived by her son, Walter Paul Gallinger; daughters, Terry Vincent (Don), Bev Dye, and Lorna Dawson (Gord); grandchildren, Coralee Bryden (Brandon), Matthew Dawson and Lisa Dawson; great-grandchildren, Maddie and Sophie; sisters, Terry, Mary, Stella and Marjorie.

Known as “Nanny” to her grandkids and “Grizz” to her children, our mom was a wonderful woman and will be deeply missed. She was funny and always had a ready smile; she always made people feel at home and she was so easy to tease.

Flowers gratefully declined. In consideration of Jennie’s memory, donations to a charity of your choice would be appreciated.

In honour of her wishes, her life will be celebrated privately.

The family wishes to thank the staff at 2North Campbell River Hospital for their kindness.
