Jeannette Fawcett-Weir Obituary

FAWCETT-WEIR, Jeannette Louise

August 27, 1971 - October 22, 2014

It is with deep sorrow that we, Jeannette’s family, announce her passing. She is survived by her daughters Morgan, Jordan and Kennedy, and their father Michael and his family; her parents Diane and Clark; sisters Jacqui (Trent) and Joelle (Jason); numerous nieces and nephews; and a large extended family. Dealing with this loss is also a huge community of lifelong friends made everywhere she went.

Jeannette lived her life to the fullest. She was a prairie girl at heart but quickly fell in love with the Pacific Northwest coast. From a young age she realized her passion for helping people, which translated to a BSc in Social Work. Her professional commitment to help others extended beyond her work and into her personal life. She was the first to offer a helping hand and saw the potential in every person she met. She was fiercely proud and protective of her family. She had a love of travel, music, dancing and connecting with others. She will be remembered for the way she lit up a room, her infectious laugh, and her passion for living life authentically. She wasn’t afraid to be herself and speak her truth, and by doing so, she encouraged others to do the same.

A service in honour of Jeannette’s life will be held Thursday, October 30, 2014 at The Fellowship Baptist Church in Prince Rupert at 2 pm. Refreshments and fellowship to follow.

A trust in Jeannette’s memory is being established to support her daughters’ pursuit of continued education and care. Contributions in her honour can be made out to the “Fawcett-Weir Family” at any RBC Branch in BC and Alberta. We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the many friends and communities in Prince Rupert that have reached out to assist and care for our family during this most difficult time.

Such terrible news. Rest in Peace Jeannette. Condolences to your family and friends.
