It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of E. Jean Pike (Thistle) on November 7, 2019, age 86.

She leaves with love and cherished memories, her devoted husband Bernard of 66 years, their two children, daughter Lynda Morgan (Reg) and son David Pike (Debbie). “Grandma” was so proud of her five treasured grandchildren – Taylor Lynn Morgan (Chad), Christopher Morgan (Shawntelle), Tim Pike (Jenna), Brittany O’Keefe (Jamie) and Diandra Pike (Justin), as well as her five great grandchildren – Olivia, Ava, Chad & Christopher Kinden and Luke O’Keefe.

Jean will be lovingly remembered by her special brother Alex who resided with her,  as well as sisters Sandra Thistle and Noreen Borassa, sisters-in-law – Patsy Youden, Ruth Laird and Alfreda Pike, also many other relatives and friends – especially dear friends in her bridge club of many years.

Jean is predeceased by her parents Clara & Alexander (Sandy) Thistle, parents-in-law Harold & Marion Pike and brothers-in-law Sidney Pike, Walter Youden and Glen Laird.

At Jean’s request cremation has taken place.

Dear Lynda and Sandra, I am so sorry to hear of Jean’s passing. I realize she had not been well but it is still difficult to lose a loved one. I am so glad we had the opportunity to visit her at Salmonier this past summer. She was a good neighbor and I appreciated her keeping me informed when I was not at the cottage. My thoughts go to Bern who will miss her terribly after their many years together. With my deepest sympathy Jeanette Walshl

To the Thistle family: Sorry to hear of Mrs Thistle’s passing. I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting this very gracious lady many times during her visit to St Luke’s Chapel services. I shall cherish the memory of two years ago at Christmas she bought me a little box of candy in appreciation for my playing every week for Alex’s enjoyment.. RIP Mel Earle

Sincere condolences, Lynda. It was a pleasure playing Bridge with your mother.
