Their union produced two children Rebecca Jean Beevers and Gordon Jake Beevers. Jean was a wonderful woman, wife, and a great mother. She devoted her life to her family, looking after her children and grandchildren with unparalleled and unending devotion. Her family was paramount to her and came before all else. Jean enjoyed the study of history, science, and the genealogy of her family.

Sweet cousin Jean, you are at rest now and free from pain. My fond memories of you when you were a teen ager and a young adult will live with me forever. I can still hear your hearty laughter and remember your zest for life while up at our summer cottage. You never ceased to amaze me with your knowledge of our family history and how you remembered every family members' birth dates, even your extended family. Whenever I'd speak on the phone to you from Canada, you loved to talk about your grandchildren with such immense pride in your voice. Rest in peace dear cousin and know that you were loved.

Memories of my wonderful cousin Jean include many happy times at our summer cottage at Fenelon Falls, Ontario when she was young. She was a loving, sweet, courageous woman who battled her illness but never lost hope, due to her love of her family. They were everything to her. Have a good rest Jean, you deserve it. You will be missed.
