Obituary

Jean Mary Sneesby

February 18, 1926 – November 24, 2022 (age 96)

Jean Mary Sneesby (Innes) passed away on November 24, 2022 at the age of 96, with family by her side.  Jean was predeceased by her parents, Charles and Laura Innes (Shaver), her husband, Charles, her brother James Innes and sister Elsie McLaughlin.  Jean is survived by her son Allan, his wife Kelly, their sons, Ryan (Kayla and great granddaughter Remi), Matthew, and Tyson, her son Murray, his wife Brenna and their sons Hayden, Cole and Jon.

Jean was born in Plumas on February 18, 1926.  She grew up and attended school in Plumas. She worked for Canadian Salt Co. in Neepawa and Bank of Montreal in both Neepawa and the main office in Winnipeg.  Jean was very active in sports. She loved playing softball, curling, bowling and golf. She continued to golf into her 80s and even managed to get a hole in one during her career. Jean enjoyed many years as a member of the Eastern Star Lodge. 

Jean married Charles Sneesby (Charlie) on September 27, 1964 and lived in Neepawa until moving to Country Meadows at 91. Jean always had a big garden and was a master at composting leaves and kitchen scraps. Jean’s garden always had something ready to snack on (peas, carrots, and raspberries). Jean loved to bake, making Saskatoon pies, bread and rhubarb cake were her specialties. Ice cream was served with everything!! If baking wasn’t ready, there were always Dilly Bars from DQ on hand for when grandsons came to visit.

When not driving kids to their activities, Charlie and Jean always enjoyed camping and fishing trips.  After the boys left home, they enjoyed several trips to Arizona. 

Thanks to all the staff at Country Meadows Personal Care Home. Jean called Country Meadows home for the last 5+ years. Jean started going to Country Meadows for the day program, and enjoyed it  so much that she wanted to move there but complained they said she was too healthy at 90.  She would say she was” tired of her own company” and was happy to make her move there at 91, leaving the family home.  She enjoyed her years there playing bingo and participating in the many activities they offered. Jean was very comfortable at Country Meadows and continuously marveled at how well they looked after her, and for that her family was very grateful.
