It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Jean Dionne at the age of 83 at Trillium Manor, Orillia after a long battle with dementia. She was the daughter of Eugene and Clara Lawrence of Monetville, Ontario. She had 6 half brothers and sisters Frank Georgeff( Jean), George Georgeff(Nova), Lillian(Donald), Larry( Rita), Mary(Donald), Donna(Donald) and was the loving mother of 3 children Muriel Lavallie( Gary), Ron Dionne( Linda), and Allan Dionne and 4 grandchildren Christina(Andrew) ,Amanda(Andre), James(Natalie) , Sara(Austin)as well as 10 Great grandchildren Ava, Bryce, Ryder, Felix, Alexandre, Lexie, Austin, Jade, Eve, Olivia and 1 great, great grandson Mayson whom she loved deeply. She was born in Monetville and after graduating from Sturgeon Falls High school she immediately started a job in Sudbury at the Sudbury Star newspaper where she worked until she retired. Jean got married and moved to Val Caron where she lived with husband Rheal Dionne(pre deceased).

Jean enjoyed travelling, fishing, going on cruises and especially playing cards. She loved being a snowbird in Florida for 20 plus years and her many friends and family.

Jean will be sadly missed by many but she is now reunited with the love of her life, her husband of 63 years Rheal and all who have passed before her.
