"FUR" 2007 Obituary


FURBER o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2007-06-01 published
FURBER, Jean Alice (née ROLLINGS)
It is with great sadness that the family of Jean Alice FURBER announce her passing on May 29th, 2007, in her 84th year, after her courageous battle with stroke/leukemia. Jean passed peacefully away at the Village of Taunton Mills Nursing Home, Whitby, Ontario, the way she lived, with grace and dignity, in the presence of her family. Beloved and cherished wife of Roy Francis FURBER, who passed away in 2000 after 54 years of marriage. Devoted and loving mother of daughter Susan (predeceased 1988) and sons Michael and wife Jacqui and Geoffrey and wife Liz. Beloved grandmother of Sarah (Andrew), Ben, Cody (Tami), Tom, Aimee, Neil and Jane. Proud great-grandmother of Trenton and Dylan. Faithful sister to brother John ROLLINGS and wife Anne and sister-in-law Mavis and family. Left also to mourn are her nieces and nephews, Tim, Judy and Peter. Also mourning, are Rosemary, Maggie, Harry and Margaret, Pauline and Hugh, Eiry, Isobel and John, Cynthia and Ian, Nagu and Suseela, Norm and Linda, whose Friendship brought lifelong companionship and happiness to Jean. Waiting for her in heaven with her beloved Roy and daughter Susan are grand_son Nick and nephew Chris and parents Tim and Ruby ROLLINGS and Charlie, a wonderful canine friend with whom she shared a special relationship. Born in Westcliff on Sea, England, Jean received her training as a nurse at Peace Memorial Hospital in Watford. She worked at Bushey Health Hospital from 1942-1944. With her marriage to Roy came new chapters and adventures in a full and rewarding life, raising children, setting up homes in England, Egypt and South Africa, becoming known as the 'Pine Lady' in her 50's restoring and selling Welsh furniture, before moving to Canada in 1989, living near her son Michael and family. Despite a seemingly fragile appearance, particularly in later years, Jean possessed an indomitable spirit and an extraordinary strength and resolve, which enabled her, time and time again, to bounce back from a steady progression of serious conditions and illnesses. The core of her being was wrapped in the warm embrace of family. Jean radiated a quiet, dignified, old-fashioned grace and style. Her silent strength was evident to her final breath. God speed, Jean! Our family would like to thank Jeff DONOVAN, Doctor REID and the wonderful staff at Taunton Mills Nursing Home whose dedication and professionalism showed kindness, compassion and understanding each day. Jean's wishes are to be reunited with her beloved. A memorial celebration of her life will be held in England. In lieu of flowers, donations in Jean's memory may be made to the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation. Messages of condolence may be sent to
