John Jennissen

JENNISSEN, John Jacob (“Jack”) — John was called by the Lord at the age of 68, surrounded by his loving family in Ashcroft, B.C., after a short battle with cancer. He was the devoted and loving husband of Cathy for 46 precious years. He will be sadly missed, always, by his wife and three children: Joy Jennissen; Gerry Jennissen (Michelle); Jason Jennissen (Kim); his four grandchildren: Dustin, Jordan, Justin and Trustin; his many close friends who loved and considered him a true friend; and his brothers and sister: Bill, Charlie, Kathy and Larry Jennissen and their families. John was predeceased by his father and mother, John and Tillie Jennissen. John was a musician, an artist, a beautiful gardener and an avid outdoorsman who loved to fish and hunt with his sons. John, who was retired after working at Pavilion Lime Plant for many years, will also always be remembered for his love for his family and friends. His home and heart were always open to all and those who knew him were touched forever by his quiet kindness and gentle humour. His family extends sincere gratitude to Dr. McConville and the nurses in Ashcroft Hospital’s Palliative Care Unit for their care and kindness to the family and to John. A memorial service was held at Cache Creek Pentecostal Church on Monday June 23rd at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers donations in memory of John may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society Box 862, Ashcroft, B.C., V0K 1A0.

“Remeber this: Every day — today, tomorrow and forever, my love for you is in my soul and my soul will never leave you.”
