Obituary of Jean Marie Vos
Jean Marie Vos
(October 11, 1928 - December 17, 2023)
Jean Marie Vos was born Oct 11,1928 in Consort, Alberta, the eldest child of Vernon and Florence Malone. Joan, Vernon and Leonard, were also born in Consort. When Jean was a small child the family moved to Rosalind. She remembered making the long trip laying on a small shelf under the back window of the old Model A Coupe. Other Malone children joined the family: Mary, Arnold and Maureen.
In 1952 Jean married Carl Moessner, of Rosalind. They had five children: Trudy, Kevin, Michael, Teresa and Gregory. After Carl’s death, Jean stayed on the farm. She was helped by her brother Len.
In October 1964 Jean married Leo J Vos of Spring Lake. Leo not only received a new wife, he inherited five children, cats, dogs, a horse, one milk cow and two mothers-in-law. The family was blessed with two more children, Joan and David.
Leo and Jean moved off the farm in 1985 and built a house in Daysland. Jean was always very involved in her church and her community. She was an avid gardener. Her beautiful backyard in Daysland was often used for wedding pictures. Another great passion was travel. She had many adventures in far-flung places. Jean never liked to let dust settle on her suitcase!
In 2006 Jean moved into Providence Place, Daysland. She spent seventeen happy years there and almost a full year at Seasons, Camrose. Jean had an incredible, joyful spirit. She will be profoundly missed by all who knew and loved her.
Left to cherish her memory are her children Trudy Moessner, Kevin Moessner, Teresa Boucher, Gregory (Tanis) Moessner, Joan (Mark) Kuziak, and David Vos; five grandchildren; great-grandchildren; and siblings Mary May, Arnold (Susan) Malone, and Maureen Sereda.
Jean was predeceased by her parents Vernon and Florence Malone; husband Carl Moessner; husband Leo Vos; son Michael Moessner; brother's Vernon Malone and Leonard Malone; and sister Joan Malone.
