Jane Alexander (Burns) Mack

August 6, 1930 ~ October 31, 2018 (age 88)

With great sadness the family wishes to announce the passing of their beloved mother Jean (Jane) Mack. She leaves behind her 3 children, Laura (Peter) Ledaire, Kevin Mack, and Randall Mack (Joice). Jean is also survived by George Burns, “my big brother'', as she often and fondly referred to him with a smile; and her extended family in Edmonton, Calgary, and New York. She was predeceased by her mother Jean Burns; her father Robert Burns; and her sisters, Joan Williams and Bess St. Hilaire. Jean was born in Edmonton, attending Eastwood High and went on to work at Coca-Cola. In her later years she moved to Trail, BC and then to Calgary. Mom was a gentle soul who loved sports, especially golf, traveling and a good cup of tea.  Mom truly loved her golf and had not one but 2 holes- in- one in her golf career. She had traveled to many places including Japan, New Orleans, Hawaii, California, and of course Nova Scotia. Mom cherished her many wonderful friends including childhood friends from Edmonton, who she still kept in touch with; her golf friends; birthday lunch group; coworkers from cable; and many others whom she met over the years. We are grateful for all the family and friends who brought her much joy. We will forever cherish our happy and precious memories and the love we shared with our beautiful mother. A Celebration of life will be held at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church (703 Heritage Drive SW) on Friday, November 9, 2018 at 1:00 pm .  Photos, memories and condolences may be shared with Jean’s family through www.evanjstrong.com.  If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made in Jean’s memory directly to The Heart and Stroke Foundation, (100, 119 - 14 Street NW, Calgary, Alberta, T2N 1Z6; telephone: 1-888-473-4636 www.heartandstroke.ab.ca)   or The Kidney Foundation of Canada (6007 - 1A Street SW, Calgary, AB T2H 0G5 Tel: 1-800-268-1177), www.kidney.ca.
