It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Jean Slade (nee Squires) on Thursday June 28, 2018. Mom waited until her favourite boy arrived, and took her last breath. Jean had two children, Donna McLaughlin Scherer (Paul) and Barry Slade (Denise). She was nanny to four grandchildren, Scott and Kelly McLaughlin and Jessica and Sean Slade. She was a great grandmother to Aidan and Lily Jean Battaglia. Jean was a fierce warrior. She lived 93 years and outlived 9 brothers and sisters. Jean loved to share: she shared her home made baked bread, her cabbage rolls and her heart. Jean spent her last eight years at Post Inn Village in Oakville. She made many friends there and was blessed to be loved and cared for by so many wonderful staff. Special mentions go to Raymond, Terri, Angie and Sandra. Your care and support of Jean ensured her last years were spent surrounded by love and compassion. Our sincere appreciation is given to her dear friend, Alex Murray and her favourite niece, Jan Smith. We are all better for having had Jean Slade in our lives.
Friends will be received at J. Scott Early Funeral Home on Tuesday July 3, 2018 from 6 - 8 p.m. A Celebration of Life service will begin at 7 p.m. and a reception will follow. If desired, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Halton Women's Place.
