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.
Jessie was predeceased by her loving husband in 2010.

Sister of Mary Ann Trudeau (husband Joe),
Pauline Eshkakogan (partner Frank),
and Roger Jones (partner Cheryl) all of Sagamok and predeceased by Bernard, William, Charles, Leonard, Edward, Viola, and Bernadette.
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.

Melissa, Joanne and extended families. We were very saddened to her about your moms passing. What a wonderful person she was. While knowing her and your dad for years through our trips to many horse pulls, looking back I can't ever recall seeing her without a smile on her face. I know we will all remember that smile and cherish it. Please know that I and the whole Gilbert family have you in our thoughts at this difficult time.

Jessie was a class member at our Guardian Angel School, on our River Road, Sagamok. We were in the same grades, 4 to 7. Recalling her, always, diligently applying herself at the seatwork, in the next row to me. That was in the upper classroom, grades 5 to 7. I must have been inspired or copied her. And including our other classmates, "we were truly, angels". I am blessed to remember Jessie as "all smiles" and giving a kind word. May she rest in peace!
