Jeanie Louisa Fink passed away Monday, March 11, 2013 surrounded by her family. She is survived by her husband Jerry and daughter; Peggy (Larry
Stevens) sons Ben (Alyson) Lennard, Greg, and Jim (Adrienne). Jeanie had nine grandchildren; Jennifer, Ryan, Adam, Amanda, Megan, Andrea, Logan, Warren and Colin and five great grandchildren.
Jeanie was born in Mirror, Alberta and moved to Ponoka with her parents Betty and George Wiggins.
Jeanie and Jerry were married on July 11, 1953 and she passed away just a few months short of their sixtieth wedding anniversary.
Jeanie’s hobbies included reading, gardening, needlepoint and knitting. Jeanie loved their family farm being the focal point for family and friends. Jeanie loved living in the country with the apple orchard, flowers and garden, but she also enjoyed working in town.
She had great memories of working at the Ponoka News and Advertiser and talked so fondly of the editor, Dorothy Wright. As well, she enjoyed her time at the Ponoka Golf Club first at the trailer and then later cooking at the new club house. For many years Jeanie together with Jerry managed Great Bear Trophy Lodge. They had many wonderful experiences and loved meeting people from all over the world.
The family would like to thank Ponoka Home Care and especially Shawna.
Jeanie was a wonderful inspiration to her friends, children and grandchildren and will be missed more than we can say.
