Sylvia “Jeanne” Sundberg

August 25, 1924 – November 7, 2008

Her angelic voice now joins the choir of heavenly angels above

Born the second youngest of four daughters, in Brighton, England on August 25, 1924. She came to Canada as a war bride in 1945 with her then husband Walter Eugene Deen and brought into the world three beautiful daughters Linda, Lesley, and Pat. Sadly Walter passed away early in their marriage. Lyall joined the family soon after and became her loving husband, faithful companion, and supportive father. Jeanne was our pillar of strength; a devoted wife, loving mother, and kindly grandmother and great grandmother. She was an inspiration. a woman of many talents; gifted singer, creative seamstress, and inquisitive travel. Predeceased by Joan Jupp, she is survived by her devoted husband Lyall, and loving daughters Linda Vause, Lesley Leinweber(John), and Pat Dicken (Peter), Betty Ahier & Joyce Wedlock. She will be remembered as a caring grandmother to Caroll (Trent) Glen (Colleen), Allan (Carina)Kevin (Lindsay) Kelly(Nim), Keith, Sarah, Rebecca, Christina (Matt) and Lisa (Murray) and as cherished G.G. to Matthew, Kyrsten,Nicholas, Hannah, Emylia, Joshua, Owen, Kyle and Trevor. While she left us too soon and too suddenly to comprehend, she passed peacefully knowing the full strength of her family’s love and support. She will be deeply missed, our beloved…


The family wishes to express our deepest thanks and gratitude to the staff on the third floor at St. Joseph’s hospital for the care and respect they showed to Jeanne through her short stay. A “Celebration of Jeanne’s Life” will take place at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday November 15th, 2008 at St. Mark’s Anglican Church, 138 W Hoy Lake, Qualicum Beach
