JEAN CLAIR (DIXON) CRIPPS
March 30, 1934 to April 3, 2021 (87 years)
Our mother passed away at Muskoka Landing, after a 2 1/2 year decline from her stroke. She was predeceased by her loving husband Sam, parents Charles and May Dixon, sons Morris and Stanley, daughter-in-law Stacey, brothers and sisters Lorn, Percy, Clarence, Ed, Rita, Dorothy, Blanch and Evelyn. Special mention of Gary, who mom raised with our family.
Jean is survived by her sister Dorene (Doug), her children Caroline (Ralph), Wayne, Marlien (Max) and Gwen (Rick). Daughter-In-Law Betty. Grandchildren Carl (Sue), Samantha (Paul), James (Jess), Randy (Kim), Wendy (Bill) and Jeremy (Amanda). Also, great Grandchildren Ryker, Rachel (Jacob), Nikki, Zach, Bill, Joe, Ava, Dalton and Delaney and Great Great Grandson Dax.
Mom and Dad were long term residents of Melissa, after moving to Waseosa Lake Road in 1968. They longed to come back to the Huntsville area where they had many family and friends. They rented at the time a home, previously known as the post office. They both loved the location so much they decided to purchase and build our permanent residence on that site.
Mom was known for her butter tarts and pies, which she sold at a family business, operated by her son Stan. In earlier years she worked as a waitress and managed a business in Brockville. Mom and Dad moved to Brockville in the early 60's, which was the town where mom had been born.
We had to share our Mom and Dad with extended family and friends, as they always had an open door and welcomed everyone into their home. They always had room for more at the dinner table, a place to stay or just coffee and conversation.
Mom will forever be in our hearts and always remembered for her generosity.
A small family service (due to Covid) was held on April 9th at Hutcheson Memorial Cemetery, Huntsville, Ontario. The prayer service was lead by Rev. Kelly Baetz of All Saints Anglican Church in Huntsville.
We would like to extend our thanks to the caregivers at Muskoka Landing. Mom would show her appreciation of their care with her winning smile. Also appreciation to Betty for the great care she gave to mom over the years.
