Davey, Dr. Jean May
A great woman passed away on Saturday October 25, 2003 two days short of her 88th birthday. Born Jean May Meiners, October 27, 1915 in Toronto, Jean excelled at all levels academically before selecting medicine as her chose profession. Jean attended U of T meds school, graduating in pediatrics in 1941 but not before meeting her future husband, Dr. Eric Davey, who had graduated in 1935 and was a teaching assistant at the university. Marrying Eric in January of 1943, Jean started her career at Toronto Sick Childrens while Eric served overseas in the Cdn. Medical Corps in WWII and D-Day. Upon Eric's return they settled in Ottawa in 1947 as Eric commenced a distinguished public service career with the Dept. of National Health and Welfare.
Together they raised four successful children: Alan, a retired RCMP officer in London, Bruce(Laraine and four children) a doctor in Vancouver, Ross (Debra and five children) an Ottawa general insurance brokerage owner, and Joanne (Stephen Pringle and one child) a successful sales executive with Metro Wallcoverings in Toronto. All are products of an exceptional upbringing by two wonderful parents and role models.
The quiet, serene and loving Jean was a most dedicated woman, resuming her career after a five-year child rearing hiatus. Commencing in the early Fifties with eight years in Ottawa City Clinics, she subsequently spent ten years with the Ottawa Public School Board, a stint at Carleton University, fifteen years at CHEO and finally 10 years in a private practice clinic. Working into her early 80's, this remarkable woman dedicated herself unselfishly to her patients, most notably to children with learning disabilities. She touched the lives of many grateful families. Seven day weeks and twenty hour days were not uncommon, mostly unbilled. The phone was hard to get in the evenings. Still she found time to be a devoted wife and mother, growing a beautiful garden and never missing a birthday.
A victim of a cruel and debilitating form of osteoporosis in her later years, Jean is now at peace and joins her beloved Eric who predeceased her in 1999. Jean is survived by, her sister Dorothy (Bill Tom) and brother Bill Meiners (Maureen). She is predeceased by a sister, Grace (Murray Hunt).
Rest in peace our dearest mother - you will always be with us and we love you forever.
