Jeanie Margaret Tweedle

April 23, 1928 - August 7, 2017

Tribute

Jeanie was born, raised and lived her entire life in the Powell River area, including Savary Island, Southview, Wildwood and the Townsite. She was the last member of her Haslam family.

Jeanie was predeceased by her loving parents Walter (1960) and Jean (1984) Haslam, her husband Raymond H. Tweedle (2004), daughter June Tweedle (2013) and her only sister Dorothy Martin (2016).

Jeanie is survived by her loving family: daughter Diane (Dennis) Lackey, grandsons Keith and Graham, and great-granddaughter Brianna Moore, son Walter (Lynn) Tweedle, grandson Curt and Vancouver Island Mossey cousins and many dear friends, including Inge-Lore (Tom) Freeman, Joyce and Ray Osmond and Elly Pratt.

In her late 70s Jeanie was known as “The Ticket Lady” for the Senior Citizen’s Association of British Columbia. She was also an active member of the Legion Cribbage Club and Kiwanis cards, whist, synch, canasta and Scrabble, and kept her mind sharp by playing solitaire and enjoying daily crossword puzzles. She also loved watching Jeopardy and guessing correct answers.

Ray and Jeanie drove and camped everywhere through and around BC, Alberta, as far as Niagara Falls, down through the mid and northwest states, Yukon, Alaska and Northwest Territories. Bus tours and air flights to Reno with her sister were a regular bimonthly adventure with the night lights and gambling. Together they knit hundreds of baby outfits for the Powell River General Hospital Gift Shop. Her happiest and best holidays were spent with her “new family” of Heather Tours on gambling trips to the Lower Mainland.

The family would like to thank Doctor Dohm and the fantastic nurses and care-giving staff at Powell River General Hospital and Evergreen Care Unit.

A celebration of Jeanie’s life will be held at 1:30 pm on Thursday, August 17, at Stubberfield Funeral Home. Reverend Jim Erb will be officiating.

In lieu of flowers, donations would be deeply appreciated and may be made to the Source Club Society, 4476 Cumberland Place, Powell River, BC, V8A 2X4.

 

Thank you The family of Jeanie Margaret Tweedle would like to thank everyone who was there for us and Jeanie during the time of her passing. We would like to thank her friends who visited daily and brightened her sprits, especially Inge-Lore Freeman, who brought baking daily for the extended care staff. The family would also like to thank the nursing staff and caregivers at Evergreen Care Unit for their loving care and friendship. Thank you to Doctor Brigette Dohm and her staff for their care for Jeanie over the years and to reverend J. Erb for his kind words during the celebration of life, and to Pat and Joanne Gisle of Stubberfield Funeral Home. Also, we would like to thank the wonderful staff and members of the Source Club for their cheery disposition.
