Wilma Jean Woodland (nee Hecko)

May 18, 1937 – Jan 3, 2018
Loving wife, mother, and grandmother, Jean passed away on January 3, 2018, in Saanichton, BC.

Born in Edmonton Alberta, on May 18, 1937, Jean moved to Kelowna, BC, where she met and married Hank Woodland. The coupled moved to Kamloops to raise a family and where Jean worked as a home support caregiver.

Jean and Hank moved to Darfield, BC in 1989, in order to enjoy country life and gardening before settling in Sidney, BC, in 2013.

Jean was predeceased by her sister Louise and her brother Doug.

She is survived by her husband Hank, children Heather, Spencer, Terry, Tracy and Scott and their spouses, her brother Dave, 9 adoring grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

Heartfelt thanks are extended to the Saanich Peninsula Hospital Medical Unit nurses and doctors for their compassionate care.

Jean will be missed but her legacy lives on in our hearts.

A private celebration of Jean’s life will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, Jean would have loved for people to support the charity of their choice.
