BROWN - Jean Brown of Watrous, formerly of Ituna passed away on July 21, 2019 at the Manitou Lodge. She was 97 years of age.
Jean Brown (nee Splawinski) was born on December 3, 1921 in Tomaszowce, Poland, daughter of Michal and Maria (Kopec) Splawinski.
She was a resident at Manitou Lodge Nursing Home, Watrous, Saskatchewan for 12 years until she passed away on July 21, 2019.
She is loved and missed by her four daughters: Evelyn Muncaster, Gloria DeBarros, Rosemary Pilkington and Joanne (Randy) Andrews, grandchildren; Vali and Marc Bennett, Jordan DeBarros, Candice Klassen and Colin Butchko, Jackson and Ruby Andrews, nieces and nephews and extended family. She is survived by only one sister Frances Chinchilla.
Jean was a woman of many strengths and overcame many diversities in her life. She emigrated from Poland with her family at a young age with no knowledge of English. Her parents set up a homestead west of Jasmin, Saskatchewan which was no easy feat as they had no farming experience and during the throes of The Great Depression. Jean was the eldest of eight children so was responsible for helping with much of their care. She left home at 15 to obtain gainful employment which took her to Saskatoon, Sask. She married Peter Uchacz in Ituna, Sask. in 1941. They resided in Toronto, Ont. until 1950, then moved back out west to Willowbrook, Sask. where they owned and operated a hotel. They moved to Yorkton, Sask in 1958 where, unfortunately, Peter was killed in an industrial accident in 1959. She was fortunate to re-marry a wonderful and caring man, Francis Brown who farmed south of Ituna, Sask. They had forty-two happy years together there and many happy times at their cottage in Manitou Beach, Sask. Francis passed away from cancer in 2002. Jean was a woman of beauty well into her 90's enhanced by her love for face cream, lipstick and hair products. She loved to dance and enjoyed many artistic endeavours creating and caring for beautiful lush gardens wherever her family lived; reading and writing poetry; and watching her favourite movie "Sound of Music". She is also remembered for her strong work ethic which she instilled in her children which has served them well in their lives. Her family has fond memories of her cooking and baking which she whipped up effortlessly done mostly by memory. She had a long, full life and will be missed always.
A Funeral Mass was held on Saturday, July 27, 2019 at St. Stanislaus Roman Catholic Church in Ituna, with Rev. Fr. Albert Schmitz as the Celebrant. The organist, Paulette van der Helm led the parish choir in the singing of the hymns. The readers were Evelyn Muncaster and Rosemary Pilkington. Prayers of the Faithful were led by Jackson Andrews. The cross bearer was Joanne Andrews. The interment took place in the Ituna R.C. Cemetery with Randy Andrews, Jackson Andrews, Jordan DeBarros and Terry Berezny serving as the casket bearers. A eulogy was conveyed by Jordan DeBarros. Memorials may be made to the Ituna R. C. Cemetery. Box 220 Ituna, SK S0A 1N0 Condolences to the family can be posted at
