Born August 17, 1913, in Coronation, AB, Jean was raised in the Coronation and Veteran area and spent much of her time in Calgary where she attended school. After meeting and falling in love with Gordon Soderberg, they were married in 1936 and moved to the farm.
Jean was a typical mother chauffeuring her boys from place to place and enjoying their busy lives. She was active throughout her life and enjoyed many op- portunities to travel with Gordon. Jean curled, was an avid Bridge player, and was a member of the Chestermere Whitecappers. A great cook, Jean also enjoyed music, had a fondness for animals, debated politics, loved conversation and could always be found cheering on the Calgary Stampeders and Flames. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
A special thank you is extended to the staff and ad- ministration of Mount Royal Care Centre for tending to Jean and her needs during her stay.
