Mary Jane Jeffery – 47, Valley, Colchester County, passed away suddenly on Tuesday, June 7, 2022, at Colchester East Hants Health Centre, as a result of cardiac arrest. Born in Halifax, Mary Jane was a daughter of Sylvia (Wroe) Jeffery, Truro, and the late Dr. Gordon Jeffery.

Mary Jane enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, going for drives and sitting in her favourite spot on her back deck to drink her coffee in the morning. Mary Jane was a force to be reckoned with and had so much personality and an impact on so many people. She touched the lives of so many through places that she worked and volunteered with. We fear that we will leave someone out so we don’t want to name specifics, rather, let you remember her in your own way.

Along with her mother, Mary Jane is survived by her husband, Lee Ormerod; daughter, Leanne Ormerod; sisters, Heather (Steve), Sarah (Terrence), Kathryn (Kurt); nieces and nephews, Nicholas, Nathan, Hannah, Vincent, Charlotte. Mary Jane is also survived by a wide circle of loving friends who she appreciated more than anything. Along with her father, she was predeceased by her niece, Kate.

Heartfelt thanks are extended to the staff at Bartimaeus and the paramedics, doctors and nurses at Colchester East Hants Health Centre for their extraordinary efforts. As well, we extend our deep appreciation to Dr. Justin Blaauwendraat for his many years of care.

Funeral service will be held 2 p.m., Thursday, June 16, 2022, at St. John’s Anglican Church, 25 Church Street, Truro, The Reverend Lori Ramsey officiating. Reception will follow in Kaulbach Hall. (Masks are encouraged, please. Please wear bright colours! Please note that there is an elevator into the church and hall that is accessible through the link door between the church and hall.) Interment in Terrace Hill Cemetery, Kaulback Street, Truro. If so desired, donations in Mary Jane’s memory to IWK Health Centre Foundation are welcomed.
