Jean Winnifred Hill (nee Rutherford) of Lucknow, died peacefully at home, with all the love and support of her family, Sept. 14, 2021, at the age of 84. Born in Hamilton, Oct. 17, 1936, she moved to Lucknow in 2011. Dear mother of Catherine Hill (Greg Field), John Hill (Cindy), Patti Boudreau (Bill), Jayne Hayward (Barry Trotter), Rose Heyden (Blair), Charles Hill (Janice), and Christopher Hill (Michelle). Predeceased by her son, Jamie Hill (Susan). Proud Granny of 19 grandchildren, 37 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. Jean was deeply loved by several (adopted) children and adults, who visited her on many occasions. She survived with Parkinson’s for 27 years, which left many challenges, but her love for scrapbooking and making cards took up most of her time. She loved just to shop local, so we did. Thank you to the local community for your help and support during this last difficult time. Following Jean’s wishes, she has been cremated and a celebration of her life will be announced shortly. Memorial donations to the Salvation Army – Christmas Drive/Food Bank, or the Tulip Festival, would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy; arrangements entrusted to the MacKenzie and McCreath Funeral Home, Lucknow;
