August 17, 2023 - Calgary, Alberta


Jean Watters (nee Urkow), of Calgary, Alberta passed away on Thursday, August 17, 2023, at the age of 82 years.


Jean graduated with a Nursing Aide Certificate in 1962 and put it to use at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary. Jean married Murray in 1968.


Her family will fondly remember her joy in announcing the latest family additions from her extended families and reuniting with her many siblings at family weddings; her travels and lovingly preparing meals for her family. In particular, she made an amazing pie crust! Jean enjoyed traveling and was able to visit a wide variety of areas around the world.


Jean is survived by her two sons, Adrian and Todd, along with daughters-in-law Carie Lee and Chris; and three grandchildren, Jayce, Quinten and Kaelan. Jean is also survived by three brothers, John, Peter and Ted; and six sisters, Alice, Mary, Margaret, Betty, Patricia, and Sonia; as well as brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. Jean was predeceased by Murray Watters and siblings, Olga, Nicholas, Doris, Bill, and Mike.
