Obituary of Jeanne Pearl Petznick

Passed away peacefully on Saturday November 26, 2022, at the age of 92, surrounded by her children.


Beloved wife of the late Robert Petznick (2007). Loving mother of Gail (Tim) Sperling, Glenn (Moya) Petznick, Randy (Barbara May) Petznick and Dianne (Rick) Green. Will be lovingly remembered by her precious grandchildren Julie (Rita), Steve (Andrea), Sarah, Hayley, Gavin, Jamie (Tosha), Jason (Dianne) and Logan; great-grandchildren Gus, Evelyn, Jocelyn and, new arrival, Valerie Jeanne (November 27). Dear sister of Don Schaefer.


Predeceased by her parents Ira and Hazel (nee Sothern) Schaefer, and sister Thelma (George) Trethewey.


Jeanne loved and was loved by her family and everyone she met. She was the first to welcome any newcomer and quick to respond to anyone in need. Jeanne volunteered with many organizations. She was the first female Head of Ski Patrol at Chicopee Ski Club, Kitchener.  During her years in British Columbia, she and Bob enjoyed their time on the slopes as Ski Partners at Silver Star Ski Club where they met people from all around the world and remained in contact with many of them.


Jeanne’s beauty came from her warm and welcoming nature and her ever present smile. She was also a longtime member of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Kitchener and Peace Lutheran in Vernon, B.C.


Thanks to the staff at A.R. Goudie for their loving care of our mother, especially those who were there in her final days.
