Sharkey,

Jeanne Elizabeth

(Larnie)


It is with great sorrow that Jeanne’s family and friends mourn her passing at age 49 in the early hours of September 7, 2002 after a short, intense battle with cancer. In the last week of her life, family members and friends were constantly at her side to ease her passing. Jeanne will be sadly missed and forever remembered by her husband Edward G. Sharkey, and her children, Cory Wilson, Wanita Sharkey (Rob), Duane Wilson, and thieir dog Jett; her granddaughter Ashlynn; her stepsons Edward Sharkey, and Stephen Sharkey; father-in-law Edward Sharkey; her mother Joan Larnie; her sisters, Cathy Skalk (Ron), all of Campbell River; Margaret McKee of Port Moody, and brother, Thomas N. Larnie (Gina), Campbell River; her nieces Michele Rusch (Dale), Terri Skalk, Taylor Larnie, Madelyn Larnie; and nephew Conor McKee, her uncle Norman Bender; her cousins Jacquie Bender and Susanna Bender; her extended family at Cape Mudge and many friends on Quadra Island . Jeanne is predeceased by her father Thomas M. Larnie, her brother-in-law, Rick McKee, and her grandparents William and Susanna Bender.

Jeanne was born in Campbell River on April 11, 1953 and lived at Cape Mudge, Quadra Island for over 30 years. She was employed as a bookkeeper for the Cape Mudge Band for 27 years.

Jeanne enjoyed travelling with her sisters, The Dart League, “working out’ with the same small group of women for approximately 12 years; watching the eagles and killer whales from her beautiful patio on the water front. Jeanne will be remembered for her infectious laugh, joy of life, unique Native/Scottish heritage, counselling instincts, and intense loyalty.

A celebration of life, followed by a reception, will be held at the Thunderbird on Friday, September 13, at 1:00pm. Cremation has taken place and there will be a scattering of ashes at a later date.

The family would like to thank Dr. Angela Burns, Linda Chickite, Darlene Sharkey and the nurses and staff of the 3rd floor of Campbell River Hospital for their caring, compassion and flexibility.

I want to fly like an Eagle

To the Sea

Fly like an Eagle

Let my Spirit carry me

I want to fly like an Eagle

Till I’m Free
