It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our sister, mother, grandmother,
and great-grandmother Jean Skeoch on January 12, 2024, at Tri-Lake Hospital.  Mom
was born on March 12, 1942, to Bert and Mary Mitchell. Growing up in Killarney, MB
with siblings Howard, Sylvia, and Brian, she spent her childhood with her close friends
by her side.
On July 11, 1959, Mom married the love of her life, Dad, Robert (Bob) Skeoch. Together
they welcomed four children, Denelda (Ken) children Dara (Steve), son Jax, and Dallas
(Katrina), Blair (Sheila) child Kayla (Jon) children Kayden and Kinsley, Susan (Stuart),
and James (Tara) children Ainsley and Declan. They raised their family immersed in the
community they loved surrounded by family and friends that were family.
Mom enjoyed cooking and shared her culinary delights with her family, many boarders,
and the community through her employment at Erin Inn, Chicken Delight and Lakeview
Gardens. Killarney Taxi was a labor of love that Mom and Dad took great pride in. For
years, along with their family, they served their community.  From work, school, and
church rides to deliveries they were eager to provide in any way they could.
Mom was a member of the United Church, Beta Sigma Phi Sorority, and a participant in
many community events. Although not a gardener, she appreciated beautiful flowers
and treated her flowering Petunia basket very well. It was a great delight when Robins
nested in the basket for one summer. An avid pet lover, Mom has had many pets
through the years. Special to her heart were Corkey the dog and Felix the stray cat that
invited himself home. Both very well loved and spoiled creatures.
Mom's grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the joy of her life. She took great
delight in displaying current photos of every one of her grandchildren and great-grand
babies. Many hours were spent with curlers and crayons at grandma's kitchen table.
Sunday drives, breakfast out and an ice cream cone were always a highlight for the
grandkids. Grandma shared almost everything, except the remote! Her afternoon shows
had a calendar of their own and she never missed one. 
Enjoy your tea with Dad and Grandma Mary. We love you!
Jean was predeceased by her husband Robert (Bob) Skeoch in 2017.
