Jean Cragg passed away peacefully with family by her side on April 11, 2020. Jean was born on July 21, 1932 to Harold and Jennie Barks.
When Jean was 16 years old she started working for Cliff and Winnie Digness.
On October 27, 1950 Jean married Dave Cragg. Together they farmed and raised their family. They had four children- Jim, David, Donna and Rose. Mom and Dad went to many auction sales. They enjoyed spending time together.
After Dad passed away, Mom moved to town. She was very active. She still went to lots of auction sales, played cards with friends and went to the senior whist nights. Mom was very well known for growing her roses and many people came to her for advice.
Mom loved her family; she never missed a birthday, Christmas or any holiday. She was always at the grandchildren’s hockey and football games and the great grandchildren went to her place at noon for lunch. She always made them a good lunch and they loved her very much.
After Mom broke her hip she could not get out but still enjoyed everyone stopping by to see her. She would call us a few times a day just to check on us, and we would go and see her often.
Jean was predeceased by her husband Dave (she always said he was the best), son David, parents Harold and Jennie Barks, brothers Jim and Ray Barks, sisters Irene and Ella and son-in-law Stephan.
She is survived by her children: Jim and Colleen -Jamie, Joleen (Chris) Martin; Donna and John Funk - LeeAnne, Austin and Corbett, Tracy and Jordi Arneson, Talana and Andrew Kavanaugh and Teegan and Liam, Byron and Becky, Max and Clark; Rosemary– Jess and Krista, Bryce and Siara, Amber and Al, Tyson, James and Brooklynn, Brandon and Shelbie, Aeson, Oren, Damien; brothers Elmer and Bert (Charlene) and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
She will be missed by all who knew her.
