Jean (Olsen) Amos

Lieu de décès : Sherbrooke, Nouvelle Ecosse, Canada
Date de décès : 13 décembre 2011

Jean (Olsen) Amos passed away peacefully with her daughters at her side at the High-Crest Senior home in Sherbrooke, N.S. On Dec. 13, 2011, at age 91.
Jean was originally from Cape Breton and moved to British Columbia after graduating from nursing school at Sydney hospital. After several years as matron of a small hospital in the interior of B.C., she moved to Vancouver where she met and married Vernon Amos (who predeceased her in 2010). Vernon's career led them to the Boston area where she lived and worked as a nurse for 14 years before returning to Cape Breton upon retirement in 1978. Together they ran The Spruces Art Gallery in Ingonish for nearly 20 years and later settled in Baddeck.
Jean was an avid traveler and was known for her wonderful tales. She is also remembered for her generosity, her sharp wit, her compassion and her truly independent spirit.
Jean is survived by daughters, Cynthia Ahern and Patrice Amos; son-in-law, Robert Ahern; grandsons, Eric and Brendan Ahern; as well as brothers, Murdock and Roy Olsen and sisters, Marie Langley and Marina MacPhail. She also has many nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Transition House (P.O. Box 487, Sydney, N.S., B1P 6H4) or a charity of one's choice.
