1922 - 2021
It is with great sadness that the family of Mrs. Jessie Brimmage (nee Wert) announces her peaceful passing at the Chesterville Garden Villa, on Wednesday April 21, 2021, following a short battle with cancer in her 98th year.
Predeceased by her husband of forty-seven years Robert Brimmage in 2015, parents Stanley and Hattie Wert (nee MacLennan), brothers, Clayton and Sesel Wert, sisters, Wanda Hafichuk and Sheila Kamp. Survived by her brother Rod Wert (Grace) of New Liskeard and sister-in-law Mavis Wert (late Sesel) of Avonmore. A loving aunt to James Wert (Nancy) of Avonmore, Dawn Pate (Tom) of Brantford, Valerie Smith (Gregor) of Perth Scotland, Charles Wert (Karen) of Avonmore, David Wert (Denise) of Kirkland Lake, and Cathy Plewes (Scott) of Orleans. Jessie was overjoyed to be a great aunt to sixteen nieces and nephews as well as one great great nephew, closely following and taking great pride in their accomplishments.
Jessie was born and raised on the family farm in Avonmore, Ontario. After completing her education, she moved to wartime Ottawa and began her career at the Bank of Canada. She was an avid curler, attending many bonspiels including the Brier & Tournament of Hearts. Jessie curled recreationally, where a last-minute search for an addition to the team, led to her meeting the love of her life Robert. An ardent fan of the Ottawa Roughriders, Jessie attended many Grey Cup games over the years.
Throughout her lifetime, Jessie remained steadfast in her support and love for her extended family and friends. She will be sorely missed by all who were lucky enough to know her. The family would like to thank the staff of Chesterville Garden Villa, Bayshore Palliative Care, as well as Dr. Hamilton for their exceptional support and kindness throughout these tough times.
In accordance with Jessie’s wishes, cremation has taken place. Due to restrictions with COVID, the family will gather at a later date for a private burial at Memorial Hill Cemetery, Lunenburg. As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to the Activity Department of Garden Villa Retirement Residence – Chesterville, 66 Main St S., County Rd 7, Chesterville, ON, K0C 1H0.
