Jean Audrey Cameron went to be with her Lord and Saviour on Tuesday, August 2nd, 2022, at the West Parry Sound Health Centre. Age 73 years.

Beloved wife and best friend of Lory for 22 years. Loving mother of Heather Patzer (Brad), and Joy Crookshank (Michael). Proud Grandma of Ryan and Megan Patzer, and Sarah and Tim Crookshank. Loving sister of George Martin, Bonnie Wardle, and the late Grace Bokesch. Loving daughter of the late Jack and Chrissy Martin.

Jean worked in the Barrie and Area Court System until her retirement. She also served on the Barrie City Council for one term. Jean loved to paint, stitch and cook – family meals were very important to her – and she was by far the best “snack bag packer” there ever was! Jean’s family was always a top priority, as was her strong Christian faith.

Jean’s family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at the West Parry Sound Health Centre for all of their care and support.

As was Jean’s request, a private interment will take place at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, a donation to the West Parry Sound Health Centre Foundation would be appreciated.


So sorry to hear about Jean. We had tons of fun when Jean worked at the Courthouse. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

Sending you all so much love. Your Mom was a wonderful, witty woman with so many wise and funny tidbits of advice that Heather, you have so lovingly passed on…like about not crying in the mirror and always carrying a $20 in your wallet. 🥰🥰 Our hearts are broken for you and Joy and your families.

Rest In Peace! I met with Mrs. Sweezie while she was Councillor for Barrie, Ontario. While then watching the Barrie, Ontario Council meetings, and or reading the newspapers, you could see that Mrs. Sweezie truly cared about those men and women she represented. When I personally met with Mrs. Sweezie, for the first time, this was also the feeling that I got. It was because, out of total respect, of Mrs. Sweezie, she explained what she had been through while asking me to tell of my personal journey, that I ended up giving a deputation in front of the, as they were then, Barrie, Ontario Council members.

My deepest condolences to Lory, and the girls and their families, and Jean's family. Jean and I worked closely together for around 30 years in the court system.
