MATTY; Jean Fenton

March 18, 1918 ~ March 16, 2015


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother on March 16 at A.R.H.C.C. Mom was born in Winnipeg, MB and at the age of 16 she moved to Ladner, BC with her parents. She met and married our dad Wally Fenton in Ladner and later they moved to Vancouver. In 1961 they moved to Abbotsford where mom worked as a dental assistant for many years. Mom was widowed in 1963 and in 1975 she married Robert (Bob) Matty. She and Bob spent many happy years together. Mom enjoyed working in her beautiful garden and was an excellent cook. Mom is survived by her loving daughters Sherry (Arnold) Rossander and Sandra McLean, five grandchildren, twelve great grandchildren, youngest sister Mildred and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by first husband Wally Fenton, second husband, Robert Matty and younger sister Thruda. Special thanks to Dr. N. Ginting and the wonderful nurses and staff of Baker 3 for their kind and compassionate care to Mom and her family. No service by request. In lieu of flowers a donation may be made to the Kidney Foundation.
