Mum and Dad
Lots of love
From Fiona and John
And all the family xxxx. 🦋🦋
In loving memory of Jean ( Corbett ) Crichton who sadly passed away on 18th February 2019
We are all defined by the things we love. For Jean Crichton it was the simple things that made her happy:
Family, Budgies, Being in the garden chatting to neighbours, A good book and A hot cup of tea.
Fiercely independent, sometimes stubborn. “Sharp as tack” her family would say.
Born in the 1927,
Jean was the youngest of eleven children with two set of twins among the other ten
Jean saw changes over the years. Working in the paper mill making the paper for the bank notes, to on line banking. Some of these changes she never quite understood but learnt to adapt to life in 2019
She married Jimmy In 1953, after meeting at the local picture house. They moved into the brand new 13 Windsor Road and lived there until she died.
Fiona was their only child who married John and went from loving mother and mother in law to doting gran to grand daughters Louise and Susann. Louise married Craig and Gran soon became a great granny to Logan and Jacob. Both loved the fact “great granny” lived across the road. They enjoyed going over and helping her with jigsaws and chatting about their day at school over a cup of tea. Having grandkids and great grand kids brought out her love for knitting. All the children had something knitted by gran. Whether it be a hat or a cardigan or a shawl.
Another great passion for Jean was her love for sports. Something her family never understood. Athletics, Football, Ice skating. She was passionate for them all.
Hibs was her team and getting a picture with the Scottish Cup in 2017 was a highlight.
Her family used to laugh at the fact Hibs were green and Jean had a dislike for the colour. She used to say “ I only watch the white” This would become a standard joke amongst her family especially when they wore the colour.
To say Jean was an integral member of the family is an understatement. She was the one everyone turned to if they needed to know something. And she’s has left a massive gap in the family.
