Died peacefully at McKenney Creek Hospice in Maple Ridge, BC. Jean is survived by her niece Janice Dyer (Paul Duckett), nephews Craig Dyer (Juliet Molitor) and Gordon Dyer (Cynthia Schyff), and their families, and step-daughter Kimberly Barratt (Jeff Clark). Grandma Jean is lovingly remembered by her step-grandchildren Morgan and Avery. Also survived by her sister-in-law Madeline Dyer and many dear friends. Predeceased by her long-time partner, Ray Barratt (2013), and her brother, Jim Dyer (2024).

Originally from Montreal, QC, Jean travelled widely throughout her life. She settled in Burnaby, BC, where she worked for many years in a lawyer’s office. In retirement, she stayed active and loved spending time with family and friends, including supporting her step-grandchildren in their sports and other activities. Jean was a force of nature—feisty, independent, and caring, with a wonderful sense of humour. She will be missed. 

Following Jean’s wishes, cremation has taken place. If desired, donations can be made in Jean’s name to the Burnaby Fellowship Centre Society or the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada.

So very sorry to hear of Jean’s passing.
I’ve known her for many years and can remember our walks and talks and coffee at Starbucks. Jean had a great sense of humour and was also an avid reader.
Rest in peace my friend.

It is with deep sadness that we will no longer have our wonderful friend and neighbor Jean in our lives. As a welcoming neighbor to all who moved to our strata in Burnaby to meeting new friends in her last home at Seton villa she was always a friend to anyone who met her. We will especially miss seeing Jean out for her excercise walks and talks with anyone who would see her around the neighborhood. Jean became a dear friend in the last few years and we will miss her tremendously.

My condolences to all of Jeans family. She talked about you often and loved you very much.
I’m really going to miss having lunch with Jean on Wednesdays. I looked forward to seeing her every week. It is hard to believe she is gone and not coming back. Rest In Peace Jean.
You were a good person.
