Jean (nee Doyle) Shane

SHANE, Jean (nee Doyle) - In loving memory of Jean Shane (nee Doyle), 89 years. Peacefully, Wednesday, April 10th, 2019 at Pioneer Manor, Sudbury, with loving family through her journey. Beloved wife of 65 years to Gerald Shane (predeceased). Loving mother of Betty Ann (Jim Horbul), Marlene (Arnold Weslake), Doug (Kim), Sandra (Sandy Stevens), Don (Donna), and Karen (Ed Bortolus). Cherished grandmother of Shane, James, Alison, Shannon, Elizabeth, Joseph, Dylan, Matt, Kyle, Scott, Shayla, Jennifer, Nathan, Samuel, Isaac, Mira and 9 great grandchildren (Baby Blake predeceased). Dear daughter of Herman Doyle and Agnes (nee Kelly) both predeceased. Loving sister of Helen (Linus Hearty), Mary (Thomas Kelly) all predeceased and Emmett (Merit). Sadly missed by many nieces and nephews. Our mother was a kind and gentle soul whose caring, compassion and generosity was reflected in all aspects of her life: a loving wife, wonderful mother, and doting grandmother. She felt her mission in life was to serve. Her heart was with her family and her home was open to all whether it was for a meal, a bed or advice over a cup of coffee. She devoted 40 years to Sudbury General Hospital as a neonatal nurse. In retirement, she volunteered with palliative care and committed weekly to the Adoration Chapel at our Lady of Hope Parish. Even when you thought she had no more to give, her innate sense of nurturing shone through at Pioneer Manor in all interactions with residents and staff. She had a kind word for everyone and was loved by all who crossed her path. With her twinkling blue eyes and contagious smile, she made everyone feel special and beautiful. Despite her petite stature, she was a force to be reckoned with! Her greatest legacy is her Faith in God, Faith in family and Faith in self. We know heaven will be much brighter and, quite possibly, repainted!! The family would like to thank the staff of Pioneer Manor (Second Floor, Poplar Unit), for their excellent care and compassion. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Pioneer Manor Residents Council or Hospice Shared Care Team would be appreciated. Resting at the JACKSON AND BARNARD FUNERAL HOME, 233 Larch Street Sudbury. Friends may call 2pm-5pm and 7pm-9pm with parish prayers 3pm on Sunday. Funeral Mass in Our Lady of Hope Church, 591 Brennan Road Sudbury, Monday April 15, 2019 at 10:30am Interment in the family plot at Civic Cemetery.

Jean has always been at the top of my list as a great lady. Never spoke a negative word about any one. I learned so much from her. I loved her laugh. So sweet.

In spite of the hip surgeries we would see her walking to Church every day. What a woman!

Will always have lovely thoughts of this lovely lady!

Sincere condolences

Dear Betty Ann and family

Thinking of all of you at this very difficult time. Never met your mom but I’m sure I would have loved her as she sounded like an amazing lady. Always keep the beautiful memories close to your hearts. ??????
