TRUEX, Jeanette Hermine “Jean” – Of Guelph, passed away peacefully at the Guelph General Hospital on Sunday, April 11, 2021, at the age of 83, with her family by her side.

Beloved wife of 62 years to Paul. Loved mother of Torii Nelson (Rick), John Robert Truex and Paul Francis Truex (Donna). Loving grandmother of Ricky, Taylor, Renee, Kennedy, Xavier and Hope. Jean will be fondly remembered by many relatives, neighbours and friends.

“Mz T” is a legend in the Upper Grand District School Board.  After she retired from teaching, and from staging annual musicals, she returned to Tytler School in a volunteer role to lead the popular 1*2*3 GO! Preschool Literacy Program for another 18 years, until COVID caused it to shut down. 

Jean’s compassion, attention to every individual child, and caring, generous spirit won her an Every Day Hero Award from the school board and a Mayor’s Award from the City of Guelph.  She is revered in the educational community and will long be remembered.

Cremation has taken place.  A virtual Celebration of Jean’s Life is planned for mid-June, with details to follow.  Arrangements entrusted to the WALL-CUSTANCE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL 519-822-0051 / www.wallcustance.com. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to the Guelph Humane Society would be appreciated.

 

A tree will be planted in memory of Jeanette H. Truex in the Wall-Custance Memorial Forest.
