Obituary of Jacqueline Ann Carradine

Jill died peacefully, on December 19, at her home in Bayfield, Ontario, surrounded and supported by the great love and admiration of her family. She was 92 years old.

Jill will always be loved and forever remembered by Bill, her adoring husband of 70 years, her cherished children, Susan, Catherine, Christopher, (Diana), her very special grandchildren, Bronwyn, Alan, James (Casey), Robyn, Jessica and William, her two delightful great- grandchildren, Sebastian and Ellie Brown, and her sister Judy (John Helliwell). The best things in life, that Jill embodied, will live on in her family forever

Jill and Bill met at Western Ontario University, and it was serendipity and love at first sight. Together, they had many exciting overseas adventures in different countries, where Jill was a stalwart and excited voyager in various languages and cultures for many years. Her three children arrived in different locales, London, Geneva, and Brussels, along with a collection of Boucle moyen poodles, Jill’s favorite four-footed friends.

Jill was a remarkable woman, always attentive to the nurturing and caring of others. She embodied great selflessness, her heart was open to all, and her lifelong mission was to help others less fortunate.

In Mexico, it was providing hand- stuffed mattresses to needy families, or working tirelessly with “Feed the Hungry “, a church group providing over 5000 hot nutritious meals daily to hungry rural children. In Brussels, it was doing hand -puppet shows in french, at children’s parties, with the proceeds going to buy coal for impoverished British war widows of Belgian soldiers. Jill’s “must help” list never closed.  

 A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
