Dear Cousins - Aunt Jessie's children and their mates, her grand and great-grand children, We are mourning with you. Aunt Jessie's loss is a sad one for all of you as she was a fine and feisty lady. She was so well described in the service by all of your words and stories. The phrase "She chose to live well" was perfect as were the words strong, never boring or predictable. She was determined and positive in all that she did. She and Uncle Jack built a wonderful foundation for their and your lives. What a truly great legacy for a loving and caring mother and parents to provide. .I will remember her laugh, her sense of style and her interest in people and the world around her. She was a "tuned-in" individual. Aunt Jessie stood up for my mum, Kate when she and my dad, Bill were married on Nov. 28, 1941 at the family farm on the 14th of Maryborough Twp. She will be remembered and sorely missed. Love, Jim, Sandra and Family xoxox (Langlands - Melvin)
