In Loving Memory of
Jessie Roy (nee Jones)

Of Buzwah, passed away at the Manitoulin Health Centre on March 31, 2019, at the age of 71

She was born to the late
Arthur and Julia Jones
on March 30, 1948.
Jessie married the late James Roy in 1968 and they lived together in Massey for more than twenty years before relocating to Wiikwemkoong.

She is survived by two children, Melissa Roy
and Joanne Peltier (husband Jamie) also of Buzwah.
She is also survived by two granddaughters, Jorja and Kara.

Sister of Mary Ann Trudeau (husband Joe),

Sister in law to Jeanette (late Leonard), Thomas (Dale), Bruno, Monica (late Hubert), Ben (Darlene), Farrell, Jerome, Agnes, and the late Ursula and Richard.

Special grandma to Lyle, Kyle, and Cole.

Jessie was shy and quiet. She could often be found reading in her favourite chair by the window or tending to her flowers and vegetable garden.  Jessie liked attending family gatherings where everyone enjoyed her delicious cloud soup, spareribs, and homemade bread. She was a great mom who spent her time caring for her children and home. Her children and grandchildren could always depend on her to be home and ready to listen, help, or have snacks. She loved spending time with her grandchildren.  Jessie sewed their blankies, watched countless episodes of Tractor Tom, cheered at hockey games, and had many sleep overs. She will be greatly missed.

Visitation will begin at 10 am on Tuesday, April 2, 2019 at Saint Ignatius (Buzwah) Church. Funeral Mass will be held at 11am on Wednesday, April 3, 2019 at Saint Ignatius Church.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to
the Manitoulin Health Centre Auxiliary.
