Ella-Jean Grosnick of Victoria, BC, and formerly of Moose Jaw, passed away in Victoria on August 19, 2012. She is peacefully awaiting the resurrection when Jesus comes. Jean was born in Bengough, SK on June 14, 1927. Jean served in her local Seventh Day Adventist Church in areas such as Children’s Ministries and Community Services from 1956 to 1992. She and her husband Jack served with the Maranatha Volunteer Church and School Builders, travelling many times to Mexico. This inspired a great interest in Mission work. Jean enjoyed oil painting, which she was very gifted at, but most of all she loved to please and encourage others, near and far.
