YOUNIE, Jane W. (née Metcalfe)


It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Jane on Tuesday March 29, 2022 at the age of 75 years in Ormstown.

Jane was the beloved wife of Roy Younie. She also leaves to mourn her daughter Jocelyne (Eric Varin) and her son John Roy (Thalie), grandchildren Aidan (Jessica) and Baylee (Jordan) and great-granddaughter Alaya, her brother John Metcalfe (Cathy) of Kamloops, British Columbia, as well as other family members and friends.

A passionate gardener, Jane was also a very busy person in the community: a member of the Hinchinbrooke Volunteer Fire Brigade and of the Women’s Institute, mother to her students at CVR in Ormstown, and looking after different projects that came her way.

Cremation has taken place and a celebration of her life will be held at a later date.

In Jane’s memory, donations to the Women’s Auxiliary of the Barrie Memorial Hospital in Ormstown, or to the Cedars Cancer Clinic in Montreal, would be appreciated.
