In loving memory ~
Jean Lloyd Wharton passed away with her loving family by her side at the Golden & District Hospital on January 17, 2023 at 91 years of age. Jean was born in Denton, Lancashire, England. It was there she started her career as a Legal Secretary. She was a terrifically adventurous woman.
Anyone that knew Jean, knew she had a huge heart of gold and cared deeply for so much and for so many, but she wouldn't hesitate at letting you know what she didn't like either! Over the years, she wasn't a stranger when it came to playing darts and crib but most of you will know her for being on the golf course! She enjoyed doing many things, but let's not forget that she also made time for hanging out with the girls' doing yoga until she was 85 years of age!
She loved all animals but mostly the flickers that she would watch through her kitchen window enjoying the seed and suit that she always made sure there was enough of.
She will be dearly missed and remembered by her children Wanda (Mic) Kwasnicki, Wally (Lisa) Wharton, and Wayne (Tracy Webster) Wharton; her grandchildren Autumn, Braydon, Morgan, Cody, and Alana; her nieces and nephews; her sister, Beryl & Colin Sutcliffe (England) and her brother-in-law, Eric Wharton. She is predeceased by her loving husband, Alan "Wally" Wharton and her parents Ernest & Elsie Bromley.
We want to sincerely thank everyone for the love and care of our mother, especially the following: Sue Wright (dear friend & bestie) for the huge support over the years; Dr. Ginny Clark and the staff at the Golden & District Hospital; Home Support and the staff at Mountain View Assisted Living.
She loved her flowers but in lieu of flowers, she would want donations to be made to Heart & Stroke Foundation and the SPCA at this time.
A Celebration of Life will be at the Seniors Centre on June 24, 2023 @ 11am. We all know she never liked the cold!
