Obituary for Inez Joyce French

Passed away peacefully at Lakeshore Care Centre, Coquitlam, B.C. She is lovingly remembered and will be greatly missed by her children, Shelley, Tom and Charlotte, her sons and daughter in law, her six grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, sister, extended family and friends. Inez was predeceased by her adoring husband of 60 years, her two brothers and younger sister.

Born in New Brunswick, Inez attended Mount Allison University where she met the love of her life, Don. After graduation and working for a time, Inez married Don and they started their life together in Quebec City.

Life events took the growing family across Canada. Inez’s kind and caring nature and her deep spiritual foundation led her to contribute countless hours to the church and community wherever she lived, including: organizing the Engineer’s Wives club and starting a suburban library in Montreal; working as a teaching assistant in Sherbrooke, Quebec and Sherwood Park, Alberta; and co-founding the Newcomers Club in Coquitlam. A lifelong book lover, Inez particularly loved her long-time role as a library assistant in Burnaby schools.
