March 19, 1958 - April 23, 2023

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Jean Dobbs after a brief illness. She left behind her devoted husband of 41 years, Wayne; her beloved children, Chris and Angela (Dan); and two precious grandchildren, Lily and Emmitt.

She was predeceased by her parents, Wade and Jean; sister Verna, and brother Dave. Also left to mourn are her sisters, Carol (Jim), Marge and Marlene (Russ); her brothers, Rick, Alan, Bruce and Ken; sister-in-law Donna, many nieces and nephews and friends.

Jean always put everyone before her self, had the most beautiful smile and a laugh that you could never forget. She loved being outside, having bonfires, gardening and sitting in the sunshine. She loved camping in the summers, going away in the winters and spending time with her family.

Jean touched the lives of everyone she met and will be deeply missed.

A private Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

  • I always thought of Jean as a purely wonderful person. I know she loved her family dearly. She had many talents, one of which was sewing. I was at a social with Lisa H when I was 21. None of my brother Jim’s friends recognized me. They asked ”who’s that girl with Lisa. They didn’t remember me, but Jean did. That made a self conscious young lady feel so very special. To be remembered by that lovely lady. Condolences to Wayne and all of Jean’s family. - Posted by: Linda Stephen (Old frien) on: May 07, 2023
