Obituary of Jean Grant

Please share a memory of Jean to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

With broken hearts we sadly announce the passing of Helen Jean Grant, 87, of New Glasgow, Nova Scotia who passed away suddenly on Friday, March 25, 2022, surround by her family in the Aberdeen Hospital, New Glasgow.


Jean was the daughter of the late Allan Victor Terris and Helen Mary (Kowalski) Terris, born in Stellarton, N.S. and raised in the Red Row.

Jean loved her family with all her heart, her grand fur babies, swinging on her swing, country music, watching Coronation Street and NASCAR races and going for Sunday drives with the love of her life Laurie. In her younger years Jean was employed by the Theatre, The Woolen Mill and worked at a boarding house in the Red Row which was owned by her grandmother until she chose her most favorite career of being a full-time mother to her beautiful children Paul and Donna. Meeting her newest grandson Silas was a moment she truly cherished. 


Surviving are her daughter Donna (George Mason), Stellarton and son Paul (Mariea Leil) Eureka;   sisters Peg Joudrey, Stellarton,  Phyllis (Carl McLean), Stellarton,  Winnie (Stephen Bell) Springville;   brother Allie Terris (Brenda) Riverton;  grandchildren Grant Mason (Brenda) Abercrombie,  Kevin Mason (Alexka) Stellarton,  Steven Mason (Alana), MacLellan’s Brook, Kelly (Stephen Young) Eureka , Amanda Grant (Jared Rutledge) Pine Tree; great grandchildren Danielle, Celine, Vaughn, Jensen (Mason), Annika, John Kevin, Jaden, Joseph, Lucia (Mason) John, Lydia, Natalie (Mason) Luke, Gabrielle, Georgia, Maya (Young) and  Silas Rutledge; great great grandchild Maisyn MacKenzie and her very special niece Dee (Tom Leblanc) Hopewell. Jean was predeceased by the love of her life Laurie Bates, her parents, her sister Alice Sexton and brother Wayne Terris. 


Jean’s family want to say a very special thank you to all the nurses in emergency, ICU, and the ambulance drivers who had her smiling all the way to the hospital.  A very heartfelt thank you do Dr. Kwasnik, Palliative Care and Dr. Jazrawi and the amazing nurses Liz, Elizabeth, Hanna, Cindy, Brittany, Jackie, Lisa, Mary, Amy, Jenna, Renee, Alaine and Amanda in Palliative Care who loved her and treated her as special as we would.

Mom, your thoughts were always about each of us, you were one of life’s greatest gifts.
You were always so caring and loving, you gave us nothing but your best.
Your nightly calls were expected, you never did forget
Your pride and joy were your family, we were your best accomplishment yet.
Mom, we hope we remembered to thank you, for all you did for us.
For all the times you were by our sides, to celebrate each success
Mom, days will be so different now, not getting the daily call
But we are so thankful we have the memories of the most wonderful person of all.

Mom, we all love you so much and we will forever miss you.

May you dance each day in heaven with Laurie and watch over each of us all.
