Oickle, Jean Catherine, age 101, of Liverpool, passed away peacefully, on Saturday, June 25th, 2016, at Queens General Hospital, Liverpool.
Born on December 28th, 1914, in Liverpool, she was a daughter of the late Stephen and Maude (MacLeod) Strachan.
Jean was the last surviving member of her family. She was a kind and loving person, and we have been blessed to have her all these years. She will be sadly missed by her loving family. Mom loved to read, she read her Bible daily and she also loved a good book. Her mind was as sharp as a tack until the end. She was very thankful for her home care girls and always looked forward to starting her day with them. Company was always welcome. Jean loved showing off her stuffed toy collection, especially the ones that talked and wiggled about. She was a member of Trinity Anglican Church. Playing T.V. Bingo was a must on Thursday nights, she enjoyed playing at home on her comfortable chair. In her earlier years, she worked for Mersey Seafoods, going to work at the age of 13 cleaning lobsters.
She is survived by a daughter, Joyce; grandchildren, Peter MacLeod (Dennis Wyatt), of British Columbia, Myra (Leslie) Foley, of Lafayette, Louisiana, Katherine MacLeod-Tucker (Barry Tucker), of Coldbrook.
She was predeceased by her loving husband, John Andrew; son in law, Dan MacLeod; sisters, Vera, Marge, Dorothy; brothers, Osborne, Jack, Harris, Clarence, Walter.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home and Cremation Service, Liverpool. A Celebration of Jean’s Life will be held at 11:00 a.m, on Wednesday, June 29th, 2016, from Trinity Anglican Church, Liverpool. Reverend Bonnie Baird officiating. Burial will be held in Trinity Anglican Cemetery, Bog Road, Liverpool. No flowers by request, donations may be made to a charity of your choice.

Myra (MacLeod) & Les Foley, Louisiana
Our visits to Liverpool just won’t be the same without Grandma. So many good memories: stopping in on the way home after school to say hi, me and my girlfriends dropping by for a shot of Sloe Gin on the way to a highschoil dance, Grandma’s bear hugs and for Les … hugs with face slaps and her, “I love you, honey!” LOL! She was a very loving and a pretty cool grandma! Looking forward to her hugs when we get to heaven. We can’t be there with our family right now, but I pray The Lord will give you all some comfort. Mom, Peter, Dennis, Kathy and Barry, we love you and God willing we’ll see you in the near future.

So sorry to hear about Aunt Jean she was kind ,sweet and loving .You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.God has called another Angel home.
Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what’s to be,
A resting place along the road,
to sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things,
but never meant to stay…
Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know.
For some the journey’s quicker,
For some the journey’s slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We’ll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord.
To Joyce, Peter and family. My heart goes out to on three loss of your Mother, grandmother. Jean was a wonderful lady and will be greatly missed. Keep all your wonderful memories close as you deal with your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
