Jeanne Boatman (Vasiloff)

July 6, 1966 ~ February 27, 2016
It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of Jeanne into the arms of her Lord after a short and courageous battle with cancer.
Anyone who knew Jeanne knew how important family was to her. Left to mourn are her beautiful daughters Jessica and Christine as well as friends and family in Ontario and B.C.
Jeanne will be greatly missed by those fortunate enough to have worked along side her over her years in Residential care, most recently at Baillie House.
There are no words to express the loss we feel but know that Jeanne had earned her wings many years ago.
A special thank you to the amazing caregivers at McKenney Creek Hospice.
A service will be held on Thursday, March 10 at 1:00pm at Garden Hill Funeral Chapel – 11765 224th Street, Maple Ridge.
In lieu of flowers, please continue to donate to under Jeanne Boatman. All donations received will continue to go to Jessica and Christine.
God Bless

  1. I will miss you my friend… I’m very thankful that we got to be apart of each other’s lives for so long… I’ll always remember your parting words to me….when that beautiful sunset is happening I will think of you…Dawn xoxo

  2. I want you to know how much I miss you, how hard is it to walk by hospice and not pop in to say hi, share treats I’ve made or have lunch with you. Every time I make spaghetti I will think of you. You will never be forgotten. Don’t worry about the girls hon, you did a great job, they will be ok and know that you will always be looking over them… Rest now !! Love you xoxo Kathy

    My heart breaks for the family. Our parents were good friends while we were growing up and I always thought Jeanne was a beautiful person, I will always have fond memories of her and her beautiful smile. My sincere condolences to her family

    I knew Jeanne as we grew up in Wabigoon. She was younger than me but Wabigoon is so small, we all knew each other. The best way I remember her is her smile. She could light up the room.
    My thoughts and prayers go out to all you at this time.

    One of my fondest memories of Jeanne is when I came to help her with Jessica & Christine (ages 2 & 3) for her trip back home to Ontario. We were on our way having a great time when the transmission went in the Jeep. Luckily it was when we hit Hope BC. Well you can imagine, knowing Jeanne she was not very happy and there were a few choice words the I had to put my hands over the girls ears. We both looked at each other and laughed. What could you do. We then called a tow truck to take the Jeep to Canmore, Alberta (closest place to have the Jeep fixed) loaded the Jeep, on the flat bed, the girls in the cab of the tow truck with Jeanne and then realized where was I going to go. Well they put me in the Jeep on top of the flat bed I was horrified. But Jeanne managed to calm me down despite trying not to laugh and we were on our way. Jeanne kept checking out the back window of the tow truck to make sure the jeep and I were still there. We reached Canmore and I was never so happy to touch the ground. That’s when we both lost it totally laughing so hard we could not contain ourselves. That trip was a wonderful time. Lots of laughs and great memories always. Jeanne your brother loved you with all his being as you were his only constant in his life. He will always keep you in his heart. Jessica & Christine you were her rock, her loves and her joy. She was such a wonderful mom. She loved everyone unconditional. We will keep her in our heart always. Uncle Ivan and I will be here for you. Love you always “Button & Sweet Pea”

  12. You were such an amazing woman Jeanne . Always full of smiles and laughter.
    You always lit up when you talked about your girls. You were an amazing mom and they will carry on your legacy.
    I’m going to miss our chats and laughs. But knowing you are with Donnie makes it easier to deal with.
    I love you xo

    You were a blessing to me and to those you served at Baillie House! I’m priviledged to have known you! I’m so glad we have the hope of eternal life in Christ! See you again Jeanne!

  14. My deepest sympathy all of the many people who are saddened by the loss of such a wonderful lady. I will miss how her smile lit up the room and listening to her many fond and loving stories about her girls. She is such a proud Momma and now she can cherish and watch down on her hires from above. Sending my hugs to all of you as I will not be able to make the service. After all some of us have to stay behind at Baillie House and hold down the fort. Lots of love.
