(November 30, 1950 – March 20, 2019) - It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jeanne Gabcan after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Predeceased by husband Stefan Gabcan. Beloved daughter of Juani and the late Isidro Iturregui. Loving mother of Daniel Gabcan and Amaya Gabcan (Cody Boissoneau). Cherished Amama of Maiana, Kaia and Isidora. Treasured sister of Joseph (Irene), Joe, Carlos (Marie-Anne) and Rita Iturregui. Lovingly remembered by her nieces and nephews Vince (Lynn), Crystal (Paul), Samantha (Matt), Joe, Zachary and Ariana as well as her great nieces and nephews Mikaela, Enara, Amelina, Caleb, Cameron, Jakson and Makenzie. She leaves brother in law Fedor Gabcan (Olga). Jeanne will be forever missed by her many loving family members in Spain.
Jeanne was defined by her kind heart and her ability to empathize with others. She had an endless amount of love in her heart and enriched the lives of everyone she crossed paths with. She was a proud Basque woman who embraced her culture. Her greatest pride was her 3 granddaughters whom gave her tremendous joy. She enjoyed bragging about their accomplishments as well as the accomplishments of her nieces and nephews. The joy of her memory far exceeds the pain of her passing.
The family wishes to thank the doctors, nurses and entire staff at North Shore Health Network in Blind River for their exceptional care and compassion.
Family and friends are invited to celebrate the life of Jeanne on Saturday, March 30, 2019 beginning at 2pm at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #189 in Blind River, Ontario.
