Jean Ellen Morris

Jean Ellen Rodgers was born October 16, 1938 to George and Myrtle Rodgers at Tisdale Township in the Cochrane District, Ontario. Her schooling took place at Kirkland Lake and Timmons,  Ontario. Having moved to Toronto after her formal schooling, she worked in a restaurant as well as the bank. It was during this time that she met Ralph Clifford, Morris, the love of her life at an Anglican Church Army meeting.

Ralph and Jeannie  were married June 6, 1959 and began a life together of ministry both  in  church and every community they were posted. They welcomed three daughters: EJ in 1962, Rusty in 1964 and Elizabeth in 1969.

Eventually retiring from official ministry in the Crowsnest Pass, Jeannie and the family quickly embraced the outdoor lifestyle and volunteer opportunities that arose.

Gardening, bush & campcraft, hiking, women’s ministry and mentoring, Guiding, Crow, and many other interests and groups all saw the benefits of Jeannie’s commitment, knowledge, and purposeful intention for meaningful relationships. Having moved to Claresholm in 1993, Jeannie and Ralph enjoyed many years together in this community and spending time with family, her greatest joy.

Jeannie was predeceased by her  loving husband, Ralph Clifford Morris; her parents, George and Myrtle Rodgers and siblings Sonnie, and Georgina. 

Continuing a legacy of faith and love, are daughters, Ellen-Jane/EJ (Stephen) Marois, Esther/Rusty (Eric) Williamson and Elizabeth (Paul) Roemmele. Grandchildren,
Robyn(Myles Wood), Nate(Angela) Marois,  Ben(Erica) Marois, Jon (Melissa)Marois, Bethany (Travis) Reed, Aaron Roemmele, Seth (Jaimie)Roemmele.
