SMITH – Jean Rosamond, of Port Mouton, Queens County, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family at Queens General Hospital, Liverpool on Sunday, December 15, 2019 at the age of 96.
Born in Port Mouton, on June 29, 1923, Jean was the eldest daughter to loving parents Stanley and Vera (Wyatt) Stuart.
Jean was so special in our lives and was loved so much. Jean lived a life of dignity, strength and generosity who always saw the good in others, making many friends throughout her lifetime. Her sister Shirley doubled as her best friend always. She was a lifetime member of the Port mouton United Baptist church. She loved to watch Jeopardy, General Hospital, Blue Jays games and attending sewing circle. She participated in Loyalist Day celebrations. Favorite times were spent on her veranda with many friends and family including including live music during her birthday celebrations. She loved to knit, play card games such as “stupid’, Uno and Skipbo. She loved walking and even participated in Volksmarches in Germany. Her children and grandchildren were her pride and joy and she was so proud of each of them. Jean worked as a live-in nanny at the age of 17 and then joined the military during World War II through basic in Rockcliffe, ON. In 1947, leaving the Air Force, she was a proud veteran who instilled in her children and grandchildren that November 11th was to be celebrated with great respect and appreciation for all service members. She married her hometown sweetheart who was also in the air force and lived in CFB Shearwater, Chatham, Trenton, Goose Bay and Halifax. She worked at Eaton’s telephone order office in Halifax until retiring to Port Mouton in 1975.
Jean is survived by her daughter Janet (David) Spicer of Port Mouton. Her cherished grandchildren Trevor Smith Todd (Baaska) Smith, Melanie Spicer and Angie Spicer (Julien Provost-Guay).

I am so sorry for your loss guys. I know that she lived a long life and I am so thankful that she got to see Walter and I grow up into the people that we are today. She had a big impact on my life as I grew up and I will never forget all the times I got to go walking with her, nan, Shirley and Mildred whether it was to the wharf to look at the boats or back to Stewarts Lake or all the times I got to sit with her on her veranda just listening to everyone talk or in later years singing to all the music that was played there.

Condolence from Jennifer Walters (Adams) on December 20th, 2019 12:07 pm

Dear Janet & Family,

I am so sorry to hear of Jean’s passing. But what a wonderful life my dear friend lived. We go back many, many years (as early as my younger days in the Port Mouton United Baptist Church, where I could always count on seeing her). I’ll never forget those days on Jean’s porch visiting and rocking and watching the world go by. She always made me laugh. During my daily walks, I would also join her for the current episode of “Another World,” and enjoyed time with her beloved cat, Fluff. I last saw Jean on Thanksgiving weekend in October of this year. What a wonderful feeling to see how happy she was to see me. Her family was there, and she and I had a nice visit while watching “General Hospital,” and reminiscing. Sadly, as she predicted that day, it was indeed the last time I saw her. I so regret that I am unable to come to her visitation and funeral tomorrow. It is out of my hands and I am deeply saddened that I cannot attend. But knowing Jean the way I do, I know she would understand, knowing that I am there in spirit. God Bless.


Condolence from Ray & Phyllis Mulholland, Waasis NB on December 22nd, 2019 10:59 am

We were so very sorry to see the notice of your Mum’s passing. She was such a lovely person; and she got so close to being 100. But she got to 96 with good health and mind, you must be so thankful for that. Will try to call you later on. Love to all . May all the love and prayers wrap around you like a warm blanket and help you through this time.
Love Phyl, Ray and family.

Condolence from Pamela Mutsaers on December 23rd, 2019 7:00 pm

Please accept my sincere condolences. I will miss our little talks and Jean sitting on her porch when I walk by. She was a lovely lady.

Condolence from Emily McLeod on December 24th, 2019 8:20 pm

Dear Janet and family:
My sincere condolences on your mom’s passing. I know that my father enjoyed spending time with her on her porch when he was alive, and he enjoyed entertaining her and sister, Shirley. I will always remember her as a lively, friendly person, who loved visitors and a good chat! You were lucky to have her for so long, and I’m sure that your memories will help in the days ahead.
