Edythe ‘Jean’ Akkerman

Born in 1923 in Vancouver, BC to Leland & Edith Mounce. Jean was pre-deceased by her husband Andy in 1974.

Jean is survived by her children, Jim & Marlese, their spouses Megan & Brian, her grandchildren Anna (Kris) & Chris (Sarah) and great-grandson Jackson, as well sister Olive (George), brother Bill (Helen) and many nieces and nephews.

Jean was a proud member of the CWAC during World War II and lived from BC to Quebec and up in the North West Territories while husband Andy served in the Armed Forces. Upon retirement in Nanaimo, she enjoyed many friendships anchored in her love of a good bridge game.

Jean will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

A celebration of life to be held at a later date.
