Jackson (née Chaylt), Jean


1935 - 2022

JACKSON, Jean (1935-2022)

With great sadness, the family of Jean Marie Fernande Jackson (nee Chaylt), announces her passing at age 87 on June 17, 2022. She died peacefully in her sleep at Temiskaming Hospital.

Born to Donat and Rose Chaylt in 1935, Jean and the family moved frequently for her father’s work on the railroad. They lived in communities in Northern Ontario, including Elk Lake, Krugerdorf, and Coral Rapids, before settling in Englehart. Jean was christened with the name Jeanne and her twin brother was named Jean. (John)

Jean met the love of her life, Roy when she moved to New Liskeard in the early 1950’s.

She had five brothers and one sister and is pre-deceased by her parents, and brothers Bernard, Harry, Paul, Johnny, her twin Jean (who died at the age of 3) and her daughter Kathy who died at the age of 20 in 1981. She is also pre-deceased by her cherished in-laws Loretta and Albert Jackson.

Jean is survived by Roy Jackson, her husband of 67 years, her sister Theresa Gibbons, and six of her seven children: Joanne Jackson (Doug Raby), Darlene Jackson, Jennifer Gravel (Marcel Perron), Patti Dubois (Hugh Falls), Mike Jackson (Shelley Jemmett), and Mary Jackson. Jean was blessed to have nine grandchildren and two step-grandchildren: Marie-Ange Gravel, Genevieve Bourgois, Nicolas Gravel, Genevieve Perron, Jessica Thorp, Tyler Jackson, Shayne Jackson, Amye Jackson, Cody Dubois, Josh Dubois and Casey Falls, plus eight great-grandchildren and numerous loving nieces, and nephews.

Jean’s loving, kind and generous nature was appreciated by the many friends and relatives who knew they were always welcome to visit and stay over.   This invitation was extended to many of her children’s friends too. (And sometimes included a spaghetti dinner for up to 18 teenagers!) Along with raising her family, Jean spent her life as an avid gardener, seamstress, and crafter, who also worked in a few retail stores in New Liskeard. Jean loved going to thrift stores and finding treasures to share from garage sales. She also drove a 72-seat school bus for a few years!

Jean had many wonderful memories of spending time with Roy and her family at their cottage(s) in the Temagami region. She was involved with the Catholic Women’s League at Our Mother of Perpetual Help Church for many years. Her faith led her through numerous challenging times and allowed her to see life’s blessings, big and small.

For the last few years, dementia robbed her of some new opportunities, but she never lost her sense of humour and her kind, loving personality. Jean will continue to live on in the hearts of those who called her mom, grandmother, relative, and friend.

The Funeral will be being held on Tuesday, June 21, at 11 am at Our Mother of Perpetual Help Church. Visitation is Monday, June 20, 6:15-8 pm at Perrin Funeral Home in New Liskeard.

The family would like to thank the staff at Temiskaming Hospital and Jean’s special friends Linda Whitehouse and Genevieve LeClair for their love and care.

Donations in Jean’s memory can be made to Zack’s Crib or local food banks.

Uncle Roy and all the family

We are so sorry that Auntie Jean has passed. She was very loved by many and will be missed for so many reasons.

As a young lady Auntie Jean welcomed me to come visit “up north” during the summer holidays both in New Liskeard and in Cochrane. This fostered the development of a special relationship she and Roy but also with my Jackson cousins. For this I am so thankful and so very grateful!

In the past decades Bill and I have enjoyed summer our visits with both uncle Roy and Auntie Jean sharing a coffee at the dining room table catching up on the past years activities and family news.

Auntie Jean had the best smile, warm heart and eyes that twinkled.

We will miss our visits together but will cherish all our memories of this wonderful woman and hold her close in our hearts.

I know she will be greeted in heaven by so many that have gone before her with open arms and a live that never ends.

Although flowers wither, die and disappear, their precious perfume remains. Like these bright flowers, those we love never die, they remain with us forever imprinted in our memories.
