June 6, 1941 ~ May 16, 2021
It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Marie Anna Yvonne Jokinen (nee Grouette) at Beausejour District Hospital with her son, daughter-in-law and grandsons by her side.
Mom is survived by her two children Karen (Ivan) and Steven (Linda), her two grandsons Allan and Ethan, her sister Marie, sisters-in-law Terry, Marge, Kay (Jim) and Sandy and brother-in-law David (Nancy) and numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews and cousins.
The family would like to extend heartfelt thanks to Dr. Hastir, the nurses and support staff of Beausejour District Hospital during her hospital stay and to her homecare providers who made it possible for her to maintain her independence as long as possible.
Mom will be remembered for her generous spirit and a caring soul not only to her family but also her friends. She will be sadly missed.
An angel lived among us,
A gift from God above.
She showered us with kindness
And shared with us her love.
She loved her children dearly,
Each one a different way,
Nestled close within her heart.
Though, now, she’s far away.
She’s gone to live with Jesus.
But, she’s here with us, today,
Smiling down on every one of us,
And telling us she’s O.K.
Due to Covid, the service will be postponed. A celebration of her life will take place when it is possible.
Flowers are gratefully declined. Donation, if desired, can be made in her name to the Beausejour District Hospital.Print This Obituary & Condolences
