Jessie Mitchell

November 29, 1921

Devoted mother and Jessie Reynen, passed away with her family at her side at Evergreen Seniors Home in Campbell River on October 16, 2013. Jessie was predeceased by her loving husband Maurice, sisters Ruth and Marjorie, brothers Jim and John, and granddaughter Leah. She is survived by her sister Ethel (Edward), children Janet, Patricia, Maureen (Bill), Dan (Faye), David (Brenda), 11 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. In her ninety one years, Jessie had many friends who were special to her, but closest were her dear friends Sereine, Anne, and Regina.

Jessie was born in Liverpool, England and moved to Winnipeg, MB before her first birthday. She moved to Powell River in the early 50’s and on to Point Holmes (Comox) in 1953. She and Maurice worked together building 12 houses and raising their five children until his death in 1971. Jessie carried on without Moe, raising their two young sons until they left the nest like their older sisters. At 50, Jessie learned to drive to get the boys to hockey, school, and for general taxi-mom service. She went on many trips to Reno and cruise ship vacations after the boys left home, but her favourite thing to do was spoil her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

The family wishes to thank Cindy and her devoted staff at the Evergreen Seniors Home, Jessie’s home for the last three years, for their love and care. We are sorry we cannot name you all, but you know how much Jessie loved each of you. Thank you also to Dr. Hinds for his kindness as Jessie walked her final mile. Jessie Reynen will remain forever in our hearts
