The family of Jessie Sim Craig (nee Fisher) sorrowfully announce her passing at Langley Memorial Hospital on Monday, May 1, 2022. Jessie was born in Regina Sask. on July 30, 1919, the eldest of three children.
She lived there until she met Clarence Frederick Craig (Fred). They were married on March 14, 1942 and their early married life involved moves to places such as Yellowknife, NWT, Edmonton and Redwater, AB, and Williams Lake, BC until settling in Burnaby in the late 1950’s, where they raised their three children: Lynda, Bernice, and Bob.
Jessie and Fred retired to Mayne Island spending almost 20 years there before moving to Sydney, then Abbotsford and then to Fort Langley. Everywhere Jessie lived she made many lifelong friends.
