SALMON (nee Jessop),

Josephine Marie

It is with great sadness we mourn the passing of our beloved Mom, wife and grandmother, Josephine Marie Salmon (nee Jessop) on January 2nd 2014.

Josie was born in Spalding Saskatchewan in 1927. She met and married Fred Jessop in Saskatchewan and they moved to Vancouver BC where she worked as a hairdresser and a tireless wife and mother raising two sons. After Fred’s passing in 1984, Josie moved to Langley BC and was fortunate to meet and marry Howard Salmon in 1999. He has been a loving husband and they were able to spend 14 wonderful years together.

Josie will be remembered as being a loving mother and wife.

Josie is predeceased by her first husband Fred Jessop and her brothers Henry and Gene Didier.

She will be lovingly remembered by her husband Howard Salmon, her two sons, Darrell and Gordon Jessop and their wives, Karen and Arlene, her brother, Jerry Didier and grandchildren, Nicolas, Rhys and Taryn.

By Josie’s request, there will not be a service. The family will be having a private celebration of life.

In lieu of flowers please make a donation to either the Alzheimer Society of BC or the BC Cancer Society.

The family would like to extend their warmest thanks to the staff and Doctors at the Langley Memorial Hospital and the Rosewood Extended Care Facility in Langley.
