Jean Audrey Chamberlain (nee Carr)
1916 - 2019
 
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Jean Chamberlain on Tuesday, March 5, 2019 at Lorne Memorial Hospital in Swan Lake, MB with her family by her side.
 
Jean was born December 19, 1916 in Toronto, Ont., the youngest daughter of James Wilson Carr and Rose Alice Carr (nee Noble) who immigrated from England. The Carr family moved to Port Hope, Ont. where Jean attended school, learned to love the outdoors with her father, her brothers and sister and worked as a bookkeeper at a print shop until her marriage to Walford Cecil Vick on December 31,1938. She attended Guelph Agricultural College to further her work in the Aylmer factory lab. In 1951, the Vick family moved to Sarnia, Ont. and Jean began her hospital career, working at the Sarnia General Hospital before another move found them in Morden in 1958. She worked in Administration at Morden District General Hospital until 1983.
Following the death of Wally, Jean married Clarence Chamberlain, became part of a large friendly family, enjoyed wintering in Mesa, Arizona and travelling. Jean was an active swimmer, sailor, bowler, golfer and an avid bridge player and had the trophies to attest to her ability. During her 102 years, Jean never wasted a day. She excelled in cooking (especially desserts), knitting, crocheting, weaving afghans and doing cross word puzzles. She was an involved and contributing member of her community. She baked biscuits for the Church soup lunches until March 2018. A cup of tea, cookies and a listening ear were always found at her kitchen table.
 
She was predeceased by her parents, brothers and sister and by Walford in 1979 and Clarence in 2003. Jean is survived by her daughters: Catherine (Elmer) Evenson, Barbara (Donald) Rothenberger, grandchildren, Debora, Scott, (Carrie), and Philip, great grandchildren, Dacota, Dallas, Tyler and Kayla and great, great grandson, Benji along with numerous nephews, and nieces, her stepchildren, Ron, Derrick and Dell (Henry Friesen) and their families. These include seven grandchildren, nine great grandchildren and three great, great grandchildren.

Dear Catherine and Barbara,
Ida and I are so sad to hear of Aunt Jean's passing. She lived a wonderful long life. Matthew and Alison were very fond of her and talked about her all the time. So glad we spent those happy days together for a few summers. My father and mother send their condolences and their best as well.
