Obituary of Jean Elizabeth Robertson

The family of Jean Elizabeth (Miller) Robertson sadly announce her passing at Pine Grove Nursing Home on Thursday, the 9th of December, 2021. Born on February 5th, 1926, in Beebe, Quebec, she was the daughter of Elizabeth J. (Parkhill) and Leon W. Miller. Jean was the epitome of a homemaker and provided her family with everything "made from scratch". She filled her days with a morning walk, knitting socks, making multigrain bread, trying new recipes and baking for her sweet tooth…and anyone else’s. For years she looked forward to quilting on Tuesday afternoons with the St. Paul’s United Church Ladies maintaining she was better at providing squares for their afternoon tea than she was at quilting. Jean was a voracious reader. She had a great sense of humour and enjoyed a good political or historical discussion, a challenging crossword puzzle, a witty greeting card, gardening, feeding the birds, attending auctions, genealogy, Jeopardy and watching curling. Jean is survived by her children, Allan (Jane), Keith (Cheryl), Patricia (Sean Key) and Ian (Karen); six grandchildren, Tracey, Jim, Margaret, Kathryn, Hannah and Ewan; six great grandchildren; several nieces and nephews and her attentive, thoughtful friend, Janet Proude. She was predeceased by her husband, James MacKenzie Robertson; her brother, James Miller; sisters Mary Holden and Patricia Coburn. The family is appreciative to the staff at Pine Grove for taking care of Jean in her last few months. Jean had hoped for a celebration of her life with "fine wine and quality cheese" but due to COVID restrictions, a private graveside ceremony will take place at The Griffin Cemetery, Griffin, Quebec at a later date. In the summer of 2018, the transition from Jean’s home of 50 years in Skyline Acres to Farraline Place was seamless. Over the past three years she often referred to Farraline as "the home" and was very happy there for close to two years. For those who wish, the family would be grateful for donations to Farraline Place, 776 Queen Street, Fredericton, NB E3B 1C6; the Fredericton SPCA (she was extremely fond of her granddogs and all dogs) or a charity of choice.
